Admission to General Studies

Students must apply separately for admission to the General Studies program. Students should have completed at least 30 credits of undergraduate coursework and must attend an information session before applying for admission. To schedule an information session, contact the General Studies Office in Wiekamp 3189,, or (574) 520-4260. Applications for admission to the program are available at the information session and from the General Studies Office.

If admission is approved on or before the pass/fail deadline (as published on the IU South Bend Academic Calendar), a student's current courses will be considered as course work taken after their admission to the General Studies Degree Program. Applications received after the campus pass/fail deadline will be considered for admission for the following semester. 

Minors and Certificates

Students are strongly encouraged to complete minors and/or certificates as part of their Bachelor of General Studies degree. Minors and certificates are listed on their official transcript. Students must officially declare minors and certificates with the respective academic unit and consult with an academic advisor in the specific academic area for course planning.


Students are encouraged to include internships as part of their Bachelor of General Studies degree. Internships provide students with the opportunity to advance in their current job settings. Students may also explore a potential career field, learn job skills, develop the habits of mind valued by employers, and integrate classroom content with real-life experiences. Professional level experiences and challenges improve marketability upon graduation.

Students may use up to 12 credits of internship toward their Bachelor of General Studies degree and may include no more than nine credits at a single organization. Students may take a maximum of six credits of internship in a single semester. Internship courses are offered by a variety of departments. Internship credits can be earned through the GNST-G 481 Professional Internship course and the program accepts internship applications on a rolling basis.
