This degree program is now also being extended to include English Speaking students who speak English as a second language or as native language by having all necessary courses delivered in English. Bachelors in Business Administration and in Organizational Leadership are now offered in both Chinese-and-English format, and an all-English format. Bachelor in Information Technology is now offered in a Chinese-and-English format.

Sias provides the following Fort Hays State University American degrees:
• B.A. in Organizational Leadership

Each FHSU degree program requires 124 credit hours to complete. While 30 credit hours are provided by FHSU instructors at Sias, 82 hours are acquired through Sias courses (taught in Chinese or English), and 12 hours are from Credit-by-Exam courses taught on Sias campus in English.

Each FHSU bachelor's degree is comprised of 45 general education credit hours in conjunction with Sias University. These courses are divided amongst various disciplines and are the same for all three bachelor's degrees obtainable at Sias.
