Bachelor of Arts in General Studies

Congratulations Fall 2013 Graduates!

The Bachelor of Arts in General Studies (BGS) degree program would like to congratulate its 82 Fall 2013 graduates! Our students finished with an average graduating GPA of 2.78.

We would also like to extend our congratulations to the 29 BGS students who were on the Dean's List for this past semester. To receive this award, an undergraduate student must earn at least a 3.6 grade point average on a scale of 4.0 equals an A in a minimum of 12 credit hours of graded courses; pass-fail hours are not counted (i.e. student teaching, internships). We are proud of our students, their hard work and focus on their education. Rocky

The BGS degree program, originally the Board of Governor’s degree and later the Board of Trustees degree program, was established to serve individuals who were unable to attend a traditional college program due to family, work or community obligations.  The program allows the student to design her or his program to meet individual educational goals, and students are eligible for academic credit for college-level learning that was done in a non-collegiate setting.
