02:15:01 Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Provisions


Undergraduate Degree Requirements and Provisions 
  1. All baccalaureate degrees offered by institutions in the Tennessee Board of Regents System shall require a maximum of 120 semester hours except in certain degree programs in which approval to exceed the maximum has been granted. The programs approved as exceptions to the maximum are identified in institutional catalogs
  2. All associate degrees shall require a maximum of 60 semester hours except in certain degree programs in which approval to exceed the maximum has been granted. The programs approved as exceptions to the maximum are identified in institutional catalogs.
  3. Credit hours earned in remedial or developmental courses are institutional credit; they are not applicable to credit hours required for any certificate, associate, or baccalaureate degree.
  4. College courses taken to address course deficiencies in high school preparation and to meet minimum university admission requirements effective fall 1989 may be used concurrently to satisfy general education requirements specified above with the exception of foreign language. Relative to removing course deficiencies in foreign language, the following provisions apply:
  1. Students who pursue programs leading to the Associate of Science or Bachelor of Science degrees may apply foreign language courses taken to remove the deficiencies as electives, if appropriate, or otherwise as add-on hours.
  2. Students who pursue programs leading to the Associate of Arts and bachelor of Arts degrees may apply foreign language courses taken to remove deficiencies toward fulfillment of degree requirements.
E. Transfer Provisions of General Education Courses
  1. Students who complete the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree and transfer to a university within the Tennessee Board of Regents System will have satisfied all lower-division general education requirements.
  2. Students who complete blocks of subject categories will have satisfied the general education requirements for the categories of note. For example, if the eight (8) semester hours of natural sciences are completed, then this block of the general education requirement is fulfilled upon transfer to an institution within the Tennessee Board of Regents System. When a subject category is incomplete, a course by-course evaluation will be conducted, and the student will be subject to specific requirements of the receiving institution.
  3. Institutional/departmental requirements of the grade of "C" will be honored. If credit is granted for a course with the grade of "D," any specific requirements for the grade of "C" by the receiving institution will be enforced.
  4. In certain majors, specific courses must also be taken in general education. It is important that students and advisors be aware of any major requirements that must be fulfilled under lower-division general education. In cases where specific courses are required as a part of general education for certain majors, the student is responsible for enrolling in the correct courses. Failure to fulfill specific major requirements in lowerdivision general education may result in the need to complete additional courses.
