Students who are considering a BGS degree or who are actively pursuing one, should consult on a regular basis with their general advisor or one of the advisors who specialize in the BGS degree. 

The BGS advisors can assist with questions of course interpretation, acceptance of transfer credit, academic planning and senior audit.

Such regular contact will assist in shaping this degree to reflect the desired skills, knowledge and experience which the student intends to combine in this non-traditional degree.  It affords students the opportunity to carefully define their options and set their academic goals, as these goals relate to intellectual interests and career ambitions.
