The Associate in Business Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Related Program (AB-DTA/MRP) is generally pursued by students who plan to transfer to a four-year university as a business or accounting major after completing their first two years at Green River. It is designed to meet the distribution requirements at universities in Washington State by fulfilling the general requirements taken by freshman and sophomores.
See Articulation Agreements for more details about the colleges who accept this degree.
The degree also indicates that a student has completed a two-year business program, which may be of value in career or lifetime goals.
To earn this degree, students must complete a minimum of 90 quarter credits in courses numbered 100 or higher (from approved distribution list below) and meet specific distribution requirements. No more than 25 percent of credit requirements may be taken on a pass/no credit basis. Students should be aware that courses with “Pass” grades may not satisfy the requirements in their major field. Students must attain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and earn a minimum of 24 credits at Green River College. Business programs are competitive and may require a higher GPA overall, a higher GPA in a selected subset of courses or a specific minimum grade in one or more courses.
Students are responsible for knowing transfer requirements and policies, as well as specific course choices and GPA requirements, are urged to consult the catalog of the institution for which they plan to transfer.
