    Finance Degrees at Oklahoma City Community College

    Oklahoma City Community College offers an associate in applied science degree in finance. With this associate degree, you can choose to follow a banking option or a general option. If you choose the general emphasis, you might select insurance or financial services for your major electives.

    After graduation, you can go straight into the job market. While the possibility does exist to transfer this degree to a four-year college or university, OCCC cannot guarantee all your credits will be applied. It depends on the school you are considering attending.

    If you are interested in transferring your business degree to a four-year college or university, just talk with an academic advisor. You may want to pursue an associate degree in science in business rather than an associate degree in applied science. Applied science degrees are for students who want to immediately enter the job market upon graduation with an associate degree.
