Degree Requirements

Evergreen offers undergraduates opportunities to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in arts, science, or both.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Although we don’t have majors, you can choose 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 BA or BS. 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. Credits for Prior Learning from Experience documents or CLEP tests do not satisfy the 45-credit requirement.

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. You can optionally choose an area of emphasis, which itself has very few requirements.

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 (PDF). If you want to see how the credits you’ve already completed count toward the BS requirement, you may fill out and submit the BS Credit Review Request Form (PDF).

Bachelor of Arts and Science

  • A Bachelor of Science degree requires the completion of 180 quarter credits. A Bachelor of Arts and Science degree requires 225 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
