Degree Requirements

Students' degree requirements are generally governed by the catalog in effect when they matriculate for a degree so long as enrollment is continuous. Students may choose to meet the requirements of any subsequent catalog published during their enrollment but not of an earlier catalog.

Generally, students need to have earned at least 120 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 to graduate. Some programs have additional require­ments, so students should check with their advisors and with division chairs.
