Chapter III: Degree Requirements and Graduation
Common Requirements for the A.B., B.S.,
and B.G.S. Degrees
Non-LS&A Course Work
Students in the College of Literature, Science,
and the Arts must complete a program of study consisting of courses
primarily from LS&A or equivalent transfer credit.
LS&A courses are listed in this Bulletin.
Courses offered by other academic units (e.g., Business
School, Education, Engineering) of the University of Michigan
(Ann Arbor) and not listed in this Bulletin are defined
as non-LS&A courses. Out-of-residence credit may transfer
to the College as either LS&A or non-LS&A credit.
Non-LS&A course work earns credit toward a
degree and honor points according to the following policies:
- Candidates for an A.B., B.S., or B.G.S. degree
must complete a minimum 100 credits of LS&A courses, allowing
20 credits of non-LS&A course work in the minimum 120 required
for the degree. In no case may a student exceed 20 non-LS&A
credits in the 120 required.
- Courses cross-listed between LS&A and another school
or college of the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) count toward
the required number of LS&A credits.
