The Bachelor of General Studies can only be declared as a first baccalaureate degree.

  1. Any courses ordinarily accepted for credit by Friends University may be chosen as hours to apply toward the 124 credit hours required for graduation.
  2. Students pursuing a General Studies degree may not have an additional major.
  3. Students pursuing a General Studies degree must comply with the Friends University Residency Requirement.
