General Studies is a program designed for three types of students:

  • Students who have changed their educational goal but cannot fulfill all graduation requirements for a new major
  • Students who seek to tailor their program for a particular transfer institution, without meeting program-specific requirements at Vincennes University.

The hours of freely chosen electives may be any combination of 100 and 200 level courses which best serve students’ needs or interests. An additional 15 hours of 200-level elective courses are required for the program.

The AS degree requires six more credit hours of University Core Curriculum (General Education) than the ASCT degree.
