*The 6-course determination is based on the transfer of 63 quarter credit hours toward the 90-credit AAS in Small Group Management. Coursework reduction reflects an educational mapping based on the completion of common core coursework, credit for occupation duties, and credit for additional sources of prior learning (such as functional training, CLEP/DSST exams, and other college credit), including a specific general education or major requirement being fulfilled. Credit awards will vary based on occupation, skill level, completed military courses as listed on your official Joint Service Transcript(s), and applicable prior learning that can apply toward degree requirements. Purdue Global does not guarantee transferability of credit from any of these sources. All credits must be validated on official transcript(s) to be eligible for transfer.
