Graduation and course policy

By completing undergraduate courses of at least 134 credit hours, students will be awarded Bachelor’s Degrees. In addition to the 104 required credits, a student has to complete at least 30 credits of elective courses based on his/her own academic interest and career goals. Undergraduate students can take graduate-level courses, provided that they obtain permissions from the instructors first. Moreover, students can enroll in courses offered by other departments of the University. It usually takes four years to earn a bachelor's degree.
