General Studies Core

Learners pursuing any of University College’s bachelor’s degrees are encouraged to complete the General Studies Core before starting their major requirements. Learners must attain at least a 2.0 (C) grade-point average in the major. Some majors may require a 2.5 grade-point average (please refer to the Academic Catalog for more details). All required courses must be taken for a letter grade where the option exists. Prior coursework from regionally accredited colleges/universities may be transferred to meet the General Studies Core requirements.
