Baccalaureate Degree Requirements

Degree Requirements: The Warren Wilson College learning objectives are reflected in the College Mission Statement: the Triad Education Program develops skills, understanding, and breadth; completing the requirements of the student's major department or program provides depth of understanding; and the Work and Service-Learning Programs develop the capacity to work effectively with others. This section describes the specific requirements for the B.A. or B.S. degree at Warren Wilson College.

Residence: For the B.A. or B.S. degree a student must complete a minimum of two full-time semesters and a minimum total of 32 credit hours in attendance at Warren Wilson College at the junior or senior level. For persons transferring to Warren Wilson College, residence must include the senior year. An academic semester (full-time) is defined as completion of at least 12 semester credit hours.

Credit Hours and Grade Point Average: A minimum of 128 credit hours is required for the baccalaureate degree, with a grade point average of at least 2.00.

Triad Education Program: All students must complete the Warren Wilson College Triad Education Program (See Section 2.1).

It is expected that general education coursework be completed at Warren Wilson College. Once a student enrolls, a maximum of two (2) additional General Education courses may be taken at another college or university. For courses taken elsewhere, academic credit per course per area may be no less than three semester hours. Students seeking to earn general education credit by taking coursework at another institution must obtain prior approval from the Registrar's Office.

Degree Candidacy: A student becomes a candidate for the degree with the submission of the Senior Letter, departmental certification that requirements have been completed, Work Program Office approval, and Service Program Office approval of the candidate's service project.
