Residency Requirements

Resident credit is defined as credit offered through the University. Resident credit includes courses taught on campus, by distance learning, and at Extended Campus sites. To satisfy the University graduation residency requirements, thirty (30) of the final forty (40) credits earned for the bachelor degree (or twenty [20] of the last thirty [30] credits earned for the associate degree) must be credits completed from the University. Independent Studies and Directed Study credits may satisfy no more than 50% of a student’s University residency requirements.

Students are also required to meet residency requirements within each major. To do so, students must complete a minimum of 40% or 15 credits of their major, whichever is greater, in residency at the University.
