College of Business Online

Balancing your work, life, and classes can be difficult to manage, so Central Washington University offers several modalities to meet you where you are! Whether that is the flexibility of taking classes online from the comfort of your home or attending one of our Center locations to lessen the commute, earning a degree has never been as convenient. The following programs can be completed 100% online:

Online Degree - Bachelor of Science in Business Administration

This online program is designed to allow students entering with a Washington Associates in Business - Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) to complete a Business Administration degree in a timely manner! The program can accommodate a variety of preferred course loads, from part time students to full time students. Full time students could finish in as little as 5 - 6 quarters if transferring with a Business- Direct Transfer Agreement degree.

Students without a Business - Direct Transfer Agreement degree may still apply for the program, but they may need to complete additional course work outside of CWU to fulfill degree requirements. We recommend students have completed a pre-calculus class that is equivalent to CWU’s MATH 153 (equivalents to MATH 154, MATH 170, and MATH 172 are also acceptable). 

  • MATH 153 is not consistently offered online by CWU and we strongly encourage students to have this completed prior to transferring. Students who transfer without this may need to take this course at a community college or other institution and transfer it in to meet degree requirements.
  • MATH& 141 is the most common equivalent offered at Washington Community Colleges
