Bachelor of Applied Studies

University of Iowa

Take control of what, when, and where you learn, which is just one of the great aspects of an online Bachelor of Applied Studies (BAS) from The University of Iowa.

Designed for community college graduates, when you enroll in our BAS program you’ll complete your degree at a distance and at your own pace. No campus visits are required. 

Our BAS program does not call for completion of the traditional academic major. Instead, you can develop an individual program through General Studies or choose from our list of track options, including certificates and areas of emphasis. You also will work with an advisor to develop your own plan of study within the parameters of the degree requirements.

All University of Iowa course work is semester-based so while you may submit your application at any time, you begin course work at the start of the fall (August), spring (January), or summer (May) sessions.

The BAS is an excellent choice if you have an associate's degree and would like to earn your bachelor's degree at a distance.

  Is the BAS right for you? Keep reading to find out!
