Business Administration (jointly registered with SUNY Potsdam) A.S./B.S.
The Program (HEGIS Code 5005/0517)
Students enrolled in this program are simultaneously admitted to both Jefferson Community College and SUNY Potsdam. They will earn the A.S. in Business Administration from JCC and then proceed without interruption to Potsdam where they will complete the degree requirements for the B.S. in Business Administration. The program is structured to allow students to complete virtually all coursework on the JCC campus.
This program is designed to assure the timely completion of degree requirements and a smooth transition between institutions. No transfer application is necessary. Joint advising is provided by Program Coordinators from both JCC and Potsdam. Students ready to begin the course of study at Potsdam are allowed to register early—at the same time as other Potsdam students.
Further information about this jointly registered program may be received by contacting the admissions offices at either Jefferson Community College or SUNY Potsdam.

This program prepares students to manage a variety of functions in small or large businesses. Typical positions for graduates from this program include: marketing manager, human resource specialist, operations manager, business analyst, or general professional manager/supervisor. The program is also excellent preparation for pursuing a career as a stock/bond broker or financial manager.
- BUS 221 (Human Resource Management) is a recommended Business Elective. Students can also take BUS 226 (Introduction to Finance) if they plan to continue their bachelor’s degree for Potsdam at Jefferson’s campus.
- Recommended as STA 101 or STA 151.
- Any course that fulfills The Arts or Foreign Language General Education requirements.

NOTE: If the student has zero (0) to two (2) years of foreign language background, he/she should delay taking foreign language courses until matriculated at SUNY Potsdam. Students who enter the program with three (3) high school foreign language classes will enter into the 122 level course and will continue onto 200 level. Students who have completed four (4) years of high school foreign language have fulfilled this requirement.
