Bachelor of Science Degree Requirements

General Rules
  • A minimum of 120 credit hours is required for graduation.
  • Students are required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in courses at the 300-400 level.  Courses used to meet this requirement may be from any department.
  • Residency Requirement: Every B.S. degree candidate must complete no fewer than 26 credit hours of course work in the senior year in residence at IU Southeast and no fewer than 10 credit hours of course work in the major field of study at IU Southeast..  Some departments may have specific residency requirements for their majors in addition to this policy.
  • The degree candidate must have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 (C).
  • A minimum grade of D- counts as passing for the General Education Requirements if the course was taken at an IU campus (Note: ENG-W 131 must be completed with a C or higher for all degrees).  Some departments may have higher grade requiremetns for specific General Education Courses.
  • Courses accepted for transfer credit from another accredited institution must have a minimum grade of C (not C-).  The Office of Admissions handles the assessment of transfer courses.
  • Student development courses such as MATH-M 005, ENG-W 100, and EDUC-X 150 do not count toward the 120 credit hours required for graduation.
  • If a student passes the same course more than once, it can count only once toward graduation, unless the Bulletin specifically states that the course may be repeated for credit.

Note: The transcript may not indicate how many credit hours have been earned toward graduation.  It gives the "IU GPA credit hours," which may include failed courses and repeated courses.  The transcript also indicates "total IU credit hours passed," but this may include student development courses.
