General Requirements

Undergraduate Degree Requirements
To earn a bachelor’s degree, students must complete 120 credits; meet the University general education requirement, school-specific requirements of their home school, and requirements of at least one major within their home school; fulfill the residence requirement; and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Additional school-specific regulations may apply.
Major Requirements
Columbian College requires that all upper-level (2000-4000) courses in the major must be passed with a grade of at least a "C-" to count toward the major.  Students must get permission from their major advisor to repeat any courses which they passed with grades lower than a "C-."
Minor Requirements
At least one-half of the course work required for a minor must be taken at GW. Students must earn grades of at least “C-” in all upper-level courses for the minor, including any courses transferred from other institutions. Courses passed with a grade below “C-” may be used to fulfill a curricular requirement in the minor, but will not be counted toward the total number of credit hours required for the minor.
