To be eligible for a BS degree from CTAHR, students must complete: General Education Core requirements, CTAHR requirements, course requirements of the CTAHR major, and 45 credit hours of upper division courses (300+ level courses), earn a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in major courses, and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in a minimum of 120-124 credit hours as prescribed by the major. Some majors may require more credit hours.

Foreign language requirements are specific to each academic program. Check with an academic advisor for more information.

It is mandatory for students to complete a "Preliminary Degree Check" with an academic advisor two semesters prior to their anticipated graduation date. This will ensure that the student has time to "make-up" any credits or coursework that may be incomplete prior to graduation. Students should schedule an appointment with an advisor for this preliminary degree check through

One semester prior to graduation, students will complete a "Final Degree Check" with their academic advisor and submit an "Application for Degree." 

In the final semester, students will complete the CTAHR Graduation Survey prior to their exit from the college. This survey will provide the college with necessary feedback to help improve our services and degree programs. 

For more information on graduation, view the Graduation Procedures document and make an appointment with an academic advisor.

Our goal here at CTAHR is to ensure our students graduate with specific critical skills and competencies that promote life long success.
