Credit Hours for Graduation

Guidance from our accrediting body (SACSCOC) has made clear that minimum credit hour requirements continue to apply, and no program may permit graduation with fewer than the minimum number of credit hours for a degree.

We understand that some students were enrolled in Spring Break courses that have now been cancelled, and other complications may make it difficult for students to finish Spring 2020 courses in which they are enrolled. If those students expected to graduate in May or August 2020, they should seek out the individuals on campus who are already authorized to approve course substitutions for students. Prior to officially approving a substitution, it will be very important to run a degree audit in myGPS to ensure that the outcome the student is seeking has been achieved.
