Requirements for Graduation

To be eligible for graduation, students must complete a minimum of 120 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above, satisfy the College’s residency requirement and complete all General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. In addition, students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course. (Refer to the course description for specific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation.

The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103  will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105  for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.
