General Studies

What makes the General Studies Program so flexible?

  • Convenient classes fit student schedules.
  • After admission to the program and completion of 12 credit hours, credit may be given for competencies gained through documentable life experiences.
  • Credit also can be acquired for the following:
    • courses taken at other accredited institutions
    • military service
    • CLEP (College Level Examination Program)
    • approved training programs offered through the American Council on Education

Students are encouraged to incorporate minors into their bachelor's program. Popular choices include minors in business, communications, organizational leadership and supervision, psychology, and sociology. Credits earned do not expire and there is no time limit for completion of a General Studies degree.
