The A.A.S. degree program is designed to track directly into the B.A.S. degree. Students desiring to continue in their educational pursuits can do so at the baccalaureate level with no loss in credit between the A.A.S. and the B.A.S. degrees. The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is a 64-semester hour degree which requires 31 semester hours in a general education core and 33 semester hours from an approved major. The residency requirements on the A.A.S. degree count toward the B.A.S. residency of 31 hours. The A.A.S. residency is 18 hours. The five majors include applied science, business administration, human services, justice administration, and religion. Eighteen semester hours must be completed at Wayland.

Notations:


**Students in the BGCT Ministerial Financial Assistance program are required to take RLED 1301 Introduction to Baptist Ministry , **RLED 3309 /RLGN 3309 Spiritual Formation , and RLED 4361 /RLGN 4361 Supervised Ministry .

*Wayland Baptist University will not accept RLGN 1301 Old Testament History  or RLGN 1302 New Testament History , or their equivalents, from any institution except other Baptist institutions to meet the core requirement in any Wayland degree. If a student has taken RLGN 1301 Old Testament History  and/or RLGN 1302 New Testament History , or their equivalents, at any institution except other Baptist institutions, then the student has two options to meet the core requirement: (1) take RLGN 1301  and/or RLGN 1302  at Wayland or (2) take RLGN 4306 , RLGN 4316 , RLGN 4317 , or RLGN 4318  in lieu of RLGN 1301 ; and/or take RLGN 4306 , RLGN 4320 , RLGN 4322 , or RLGN 4324  in lieu of RLGN 1302 . RLGN 4306  may be an option for either RLGN 1301  or RLGN 1302  as stated above, but may not count for both on the same degree plan. No other RLGN/RLED courses may substitute for either RLGN 1301  or RLGN 1302 . The Dean of the School of Religion & Philosophy must approve any exception to this policy. RLGN 1301 Old Testament History  or RLGN 1302 New Testament History , or their equivalents, taken at non-Baptist institutions, may be transferred as elective credit with approval of the Dean of the School of Religion and Philosophy and the Registrar.
