Undergraduate Information

To qualify for the award of a baccalaureate degree (B.A., B.S., B.B.A., B.F.A., B.S.W.), students must satisfactorily complete the following:

  1. The requirements for General Education  (approximately 31-34 credits), which apply to all undergraduates; and
  2. The requirements for their chosen major (27 or more, depending on the major); and
  3. A minimum of 120 total credits, which includes the credits required for General Education and the major together with additional electives. The College of Nursing and Public Health requires 124 credits for its generic degree and R.N. degree. The Robert B. Willumstad School of Business requires 120–125 credits for its degrees.

The University awards the following undergraduate degrees to students who fulfill degree requirements. Each degree is followed by its New York State Program Code, its HEGIS Code, and CIP Code. Students are advised that enrollment in other than registered or otherwise approved programs may jeopardize their eligibility for certain student aid awards.

Academic Minors

Students wanting to declare a minor should do so by the first semester of their junior year, but by no later than the beginning of the first semester of their senior year. This will enable them to seek the advice needed to be able to complete the requirements of the minor. Some departments offer more than one minor track and new minors are being constantly developed. Students are advised to consult the department’s minor advisors as early in their studies as possible. The form used to declare the intention to pursue a minor has a place for the signature of the department chairperson and dean. Pass/Fail courses may not be applied to a minor. Students must achieve a minimum 2.00 GPA in their minor courses in order to have the minor listed on their transcript.

Graduate Information

The University awards graduate degrees to students who fulfill all degree requirements. Students are advised that enrollment in programs that are not registered or approved programs may jeopardize their eligibility for certain student aid awards. Following each graduate degree is its New York State Program Code, HEGIS Code and CIP Code.
