    Credits to Degree

    All students must complete 120 credits to graduate. In many majors, students might complete all course requirements, and still need credits to meet the 120 required. This flexibility allows L&S students to pursue travel study, double majors or to take courses for professional growth or for enjoyment.

    The Academic Advising Report (AAR) is divided into two sections, a transcript of all courses taken and an Advisement Report that applies courses to requirements. To track your 120 credits, do not use the cumulative credits at the end of the transcript. Instead, use the requirement which appears at the beginning of the Advisement Report section.

    I. A minimum of 120 units...

    This number excludes any developmental coursework and will include courses that you have registered for (if the AAR is recent enough to list those courses)
