Aviation credentials qualify for degree credit at Northwestern


March 24, 2023

Northwestern Oklahoma State University has now added the aviation field to its Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree in technical management. While Northwestern will not offer courses in aviation, credentials and experience obtained in the aviation field may be used toward a degree in this area.

“We are seeing a trend in higher education for universities to offer innovative pathways toward degree completion,” Dr. James Bell, vice president for academic affairs, said. “One of these is the awarding of academic credit for earned industry credentials in tandem with traditional coursework. We are excited to offer this option and give more flexibility for students in aviation.”

How A Plan Would Work

General Education – 41-42 hours

Technical Management Core (Business Courses) – 49 hours

Certification/Training Already Obtained – up to 30 hours

Additional Credits – 6-30 hours
