Students are subject to the general degree requirements in effect at the time they enter the College of Arts and Sciences and are subject to the major requirements in force at the time they declare the major. All Arts and Science degrees require the completion of a major, a specific number of credits, and either the new general education (gen ed) requirements OR the old core curriculum.

Students must complete a degree within 10 years. If it has been more than 10 years since matriculation into the College of Arts and Sciences and no degree has been completed, students may be subject to new curricula in place at time of re-enrollment.  

(Students entering the college in the fall of 2018 or thereafter must complete these requirements. Students who entered before the fall 2018 have the option of completing either these requirements OR the old Core Curriculum)
