Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Technology
The Bachelor of Applied Science with a major in Information Technology is designed for students who have an Associate of Applied Science in computing from a member institution of the Technical College System of Georgia. The courses that you have completed for your AAS will transfer as a block, and you will be required to take an additional 67 credit hours (or approximately 2.5 years of full-time study) to obtain the BAS degree.
Students must earn an A.A.S in a computing field with a GPA of 2.3 or better from a TCSG college to transfer into the BASIT program. Admission to the BASIT program will require that a student successfully complete or transfer the equivalent of CSE1321( lecture) and CSE1321L (corresponding lab ) with a grade of 'B' or better in both.
In order to give you the flexibility you need, the courses at KSU are offered on-line, hybrid (1/2 in class and 1/2 online), and in class. If they are located away from the Marietta area, you will probably prefer to take all the courses online. All general education requirements are also offered on-line through the university system called E-core.
The primary aim of the BASIT is identical to the Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology, namely to prepare students for progressively more responsible positions in the field of Information Technology, including positions that are supervisory or managerial in nature. More specifically, as you graduate from the program, you will be able to
- apply problem solving skills, core IT concepts, best practices and standards to information technologies;
- identify and evaluate organizational requirements and current and emerging technologies;
- select, design, integrate and administer IT-based solutions into the organizational environment;
- communicate effectively, both in writing and in speaking;
- demonstrate an ability to participate effectively in the planning and execution of team projects;
- describe the impact of IT solutions in a global, societal, and ethical context;
- describe the need for lifelong learning and some of the methods for engaging in it.
At the moment, you can transfer into the BASIT degree with automatic acceptance if you have a GPA of 2.3 or above and an AAS in:

Students should follow the degree requirements listed in the Academic Catalog appropriate to the year in which they began the program.CLICK HERE TO SEE LATEST REQUIREMENTS
Curriculum requirements for the BASIT program may change from year to year. Students' requirements are determined based on the academic year in which they began the program declared as a BASIT major. Degree requirements generally do not change once a student is declared a BASIT major until graduation, except if the student does not attend KSU for 3 consecutive semesters (including summer) or if the student requests a change of catalog year to a newer set of requirements. Students may update to any newer set of academic requirements if they wish.
- The Academic Catalog contains the academic requirements and policies to obtain a degree of a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, and all other advising material (curriculum sheets, DegreeWorks) are based on this.
- Curriculum sheets can be found on the CCSE Academic Advising Office website. Curriculum sheets are helpful guides to be used along with meeting an academic advisor and DegreeWorks, and are subject to change. Always double check with an academic advisor.
- Prerequisites used in registration for courses follow the latest approved prerequisites. Therefore, what may be listed as the prerequisite on a 2015 academic year curriculum sheet may not be the prerequisite required in registering for the Fall 2018 semester. Prerequisites should be updated in the catalog upon approval. Again, always check with an academic advisor.
