Bachelor's Degree with Ottawa University

Ottowa Business PartnershipStudents who receive an Associate of Science degree in business administration from Butler Community College will be able to take Ottawa University classes on the Butler Andover campus and receive a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing. The Higher Learning Commission granted accreditation to Ottawa University for this degree model.

This program is designed for the working student in mind. Classes will meet at the Andover campus from 6 - 10 p.m. one night a week.
Each class will meet with a professor for two hours a week for eight weeks and online for a similar amount of time.
In this way, each student will complete four classes per semester. All students will go through the two year process as a “unit” – taking the same sequence of classes.

Who is eligible?

New Students: After students receive their associate’s degree at Butler and are accepted into the program, they will take five more classes at the community college. At this point, they will become Ottawa students, but all classes will be offered at Butler’s Andover campus.

Past/Present Students: Anyone who has received an associate of science in business administration from Butler and has a 3.0 GPA can apply to be in the program. In addition to your A.S. from Butler, you will need to complete five additional courses from Butler before you start your Ottawa courses.
