Degree Requirements

Evergreen students need to take charge of developing their own academic plan, since there are no required courses, and we encourage you to do this in consultation with an academic advisor.  A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Although we don't have majors, you can develop an Area of Emphasis in your studies, which would require choosing appropriate programs and courses.
  • If you are planning to go on to graduate or professional school, there are likely to be prerequisite courses you need to take as part of your B.A. or B.S.  Talk to an advisor to make sure you're on track to complete these.
  • If you transfer credits from another college, at least 45 of your last 90 credits must be earned from Evergreen to earn an Evergreen degree.

Bachelor of Arts

  • Requires completion of 180 quarter credits.  Students admitted Fall 2013 and later must also submit an Academic Statement
  • We don't have general education requirements, so there are no required courses you have to take.
  • We also don't have majors, so there are no major requirements to fulfill.

Bachelor of Science

  • Requires completion of 180 quarter credits. Students admitted Fall 2013 and later must also submit an Academic Statement.
  • At least 72 of those credits must be in math, science, or computer science
  • At least 48 of those 72 credits must be upper division math, science, or computer science

Please meet with an academic advisor to make sure you are choosing programs that will fulfill these requirements.  Also, you should fill out and submit to Registration the Declaration of Intent to Pursue a BS or BA/BS form.  If you want to see how the credits you've already completed count toward the BS requirement, you may fill out and submit the B.S. Credit Review Request Form.

Bachelor of Arts and Science degree

  • Requires completion of 225 quarter credits. Students admitted Fall 2013 and later must also submit an Academic Statement.
  • At least 72 of those credits must be math, science or computer science
  • At least 48 of those 72 must be upper division

Please meet with an academic advisor to see if the combined B.A./B.S. is the best choice for you, and to plan programs that will meet the B.S. requirements.  Also, you should fill out and submit to Registration the Declaration of Intent to Pursue a BS or BA/BS form.  If you want to see how the credits you've already completed count toward the BS requirement, you may fill out and submit the B.S. Credit Review Request Form.
