NOTES:  1.   Hours for the CoSCC program are based upon the 2004-2005 catalog. The Associate of Applied Science Degree from Columbia State Community College may require more hours than are indicated on this program of study.  Because of the BS in Professional Studies degree requirements, only 60 of those AAS hours are applicable to the BSPS degree.
2.  Lower division APSU general education courses required for the BSPS that are not a part of your CoSCC AAS degree requirements may be taken at Columbia State Community College and transferred to Austin Peay State University.
3.  All upper division BSPS courses from APSU are offered online.
