1 University Policy The conferring of degrees by the University of Louisville is conditional upon completion of all requirements in the opinion of the Dean/Director and faculty, regardless of the students participation in Commencement or any other representations by University employees. The student is responsible for submitting an application for a degree in a timely manner to be considered for a degree. Commencements are scheduled for May and December. Commencement information and current schedules are available online at Graduates participating in the commencement ceremonies must order academic apparel before the deadline stated on the website. All graduating students must apply for their degrees online according to deadlines declared by the Registrar s Office at omm.html. Unit Policies College of Arts and Sciences All undergraduate degree programs are based on a combination of freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior level courses which form a coherent, comprehensive undergraduate curriculum. The important distinction between these levels is that the freshman and sophomore curriculum is designed to provide a background that helps form the basis for advanced course work and concentration in a major area at the junior and senior level. The junior and senior level courses permit students to pursue more advanced work in the chosen major, in related fields, and in courses designed to explore the relationships among the disciplines. The baccalaureate degree is the most comprehensive undergraduate degree in the College. It is awarded to students who have completed both College-wide requirements and the requirements of the selected major. This combination is designed to provide the broad spectrum of educational experiences that is fundamental to a liberal arts degree. Admission to a Major In order to graduate from the College of Arts and Sciences, all students must major in one of the degree programs of the College. To become a major in a degree program, students must complete an Application for Major form which is available in the Arts and Sciences Advising Center. The completed form is submitted to the Advising Center and then transmitted to the major program or department for consideration. Students become majors after acceptance by the department or the program. Some departments have specific requirements (e.g., completion of introductory course; minimum grade point average) for admission to the major. Consult the Advising Center for details of any admission requirements for a particular major. Students interested in a B.A. who find that the College s major programs do not meet their interests and needs should consider the Liberal Studies major. Students may apply for admission to a major at any time. Most programs allow students to take work in the major field and in related fields during the freshman and sophomore years. Students who need to discover or confirm the choice of a major are encouraged to take a variety of foundation courses in different fields. Students who feel certain of their choices are encouraged to apply for a major early in their college experience in order to enjoy the benefits of advising and counseling from faculty in the major program. Students may change majors at any time; however, the need to fulfill the requirements of the ultimate major might require additional course work beyond the minimum hours required for graduation from the College. Minimum Hours Each student must present a minimum of 121 semester hours of credit (unless a higher minimum is specified in a program of study). At least 50 of the total semester hours, whether required or elective, must be earned in courses numbered 300 or higher. Point Standing Each student must attain a grade point average of at least 2.0 for all courses in the major field, and 2.0 overall. Details of requirements in programs requiring higher standings may be seen in departmental entries.

2 Maximum Hours in Major No more than 40 hours in the major field may be applied toward graduation by candidates for the B.A. degree. No more than 60 hours in the major field may be applied toward graduation by candidates for the B.S. degree. No more than 80 hours in Fine Art (courses designated ART and ARTH) may be applied toward the B.F.A. in Fine Arts. Second Bachelor s Degrees To be awarded a second bachelor s degree, students must earn a minimum of thirty (30) additional semester hours in the College. For students pursuing two degrees simultaneously, these thirty (30) hours will be added to the minimum total of semester hours needed for the degree requiring the least number of hours. Departmental Learning Outcomes Assessment Completion of a baccalaureate degree also requires students to submit work to the department of the major for the department s Learning Outcomes Measurement. Details about the specific requirements and deadlines of an individual department are available in the department office. Students are advised to make themselves aware of these requirements as early as possible in their academic careers. Requirements for Minors The course work requirements for a minor consist of a minimum of 18 semester hours. A maximum of 3 hours of pass-fail work may be applied. Students may elect a major and a minor in the same department only if there is more than one degree program in that department and if the major and minor are in two different programs of the department. Students who elect a minor and a major in the same department are cautioned that no more than 40 semester hours with the same departmental designation may be applied toward the 121 hours minimum for a B.A. degree and no more than 60 hours with the same departmental designation may be applied toward the 121 hours minimum for a B.S. degree. Students also are cautioned that completion of the major, which is required for all degrees, and completion of the minor, which is optional, may require the student to complete more than the 121 semester hours minimum required for a baccalaureate degree. Courses required for the minor may be used to fulfill other degree requirements. Successfully completed minor programs are recorded on the student s transcript. College of Business Application for Degree Students must apply for their degree at the beginning of the semester in which they expect to complete all degree requirements. The degree application is to be filled out on Ulink at The degree application must be submitted by the date published for each semester in the Schedule of Courses and on Ulink. Advisors in the Reinhardt Academic Center will conduct a degree check following the application deadline. However, students are strongly urged to request a preliminary degree check prior to their final semester so that possible deficiencies in degree requirements can be identified early. Minimum Hours Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts in Economics, or Bachelor of Science in Economics must complete a minimum of semester hours (depending upon degree program) in academic subjects and all required courses for their degree program. These hours exclude physical education courses numbered and other non-academic credits (all remedial course work including Reading, English, and Math courses numbered 100 or below). A minimum of 54 semester hours in non-business courses together with a minimum of 54 semester hours in business courses are required for graduation. Students pursuing a second bachelor's degree must be admitted to the College of Business in degree status, must earn a minimum of 30 hours beyond their last degree and fulfill all program and GPA requirements of the second degree. Grade Point Average Candidates for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and the Bachelor of Science in Economics must achieve a 2.8 University GPA and a 2.8 GPA in all major courses (includes major courses that are transferred). Senior College Hours Fifty semester hours of required and elective courses must be completed at the senior college (300/400) level. Note that the number of the course, not the student's classification, determines whether or not a course is senior-level.
