Program Overview

Applications for Fall 2019 are being accepted via petition on a space-available/processing time basis. Please see our Application Processes page for admission criteria and a link to undergraduate application information.

AACSB Accredited

The most recognized form of specialized and professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.

Sonoma State University partners with College of Marin, via the Schools of Business and Economics and Extended & International Education, to provide a pathway for students to earn a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Management.

Courses are taught by SSU faculty, scheduled evenings and Saturdays on the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin. The program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and is designed specifically for students with work, family or other commitments who are not able to join traditional Business degree programs on the main SSU campus in Rohnert Park.


The BS Business Administration @ College of Marin is a self-supporting program, receiving no State funding. Fees are collected on a per-unit basis, currently $400 per unit (subject to change).

Students pay only for the courses they take each semester, so a student taking 12 units will pay $4800; a student taking 8 units will pay $3200.

Pre-Admissions Evaluation

Students will be admitted to the program each Fall semester based on fulfilling both the general education CSU transfer pattern and Business Administration pe-requisites. Because there are numerous pre-requisites, we strongly recommend getting a pre-admissions assessment to determine where you stand in terms of entrance requirements (see Application Critiera for the full list).

Prospective applicants who are current or former College of Marin students should contact Will Coley,, 415-457-8811 ext. 7769, in the College of Marin Counseling Department to set up an appointment for a pre-admission assessment

Other prospective applicants should contact Amy Unger,, 707-664-2601 to arrange a preadmission assessment.
