Bachelor's Degree Requirements

To be eligible for graduation, a student must be fully matriculated and must satisfy the following requirements:

1.Complete a minimum of 128 credit hours. 2.Complete at least 30 credit hours in residence during the junior and senior years combined. “Residence credit” is credit for classes taught by WSU faculty as well as credit earned under the Minnesota State University Common Market Program; it does not include credit by examination.
3.Complete at least 40 credit hours of 300- to 400-level coursework.
4.Complete the General Education Program requirements.
5.Earn a minimum WSU cumulative GPA of 2.00. Transfer students must also earn a minimum combined WSU and transfer cumulative GPA of 2.00.
6.Be enrolled at WSU during the semester of graduation.
7.Complete, with a “C” average, either a broad major of 47 credit hours or more or a major of fewer than 47 credit hours combined with a minor or a second major. (With a broad major, a minor is not required.) Students should be aware of the following considerations related to the major requirements:
a.A student cannot have a minor or option that consists wholly of courses that are required in the major or option in which he/she is earning a degree.
b.Students can use a course to meet requirements in any major, minor, or option requiring the course. Credit earned in a course counts only once toward the minimum credit hours required for graduation.
c.If the major has more than one option, the minor requirement may not be fulfilled with a second option in that major. However, a student may take a major and a minor in the same department, unless the department prohibits that practice.
d.Certain departments require students to earn a grade of “C” or better in each course within their major/minor or to earn a grade of “C” or better in specific courses in their major/minor. Students should consult with the department offering the major or minor for any additional GPA requirements.
e.The major GPA does not include grades earned in additional requirements courses. (For more information, see General Education Program.)
