What’s New

Change in University Baccalaureate Requirements

Two undergraduate university graduation requirements have recently changed and may shorten time to graduation.
1) The university upper division credit requirement has been lowered from 62 credits to 60. Undergraduates may graduate with a minimum of 60 upper division credits. This change will be applied to all students regardless of their catalog year. Students that previously did not graduate because they lacked 62 upper division credits, but that did complete 60 credits, should contact the Office of the Registrar; Lieuallen Administration Building, first floor, call 503-838-8327, or email registrar@wou.edu
2) The university has decided that beginning in the 2018-219 academic year, minors will be optional. Current students that have met all other graduation requirements, except completing the minor, will be able to graduate without the minor, if they wish. Students that meet this criteria will be emailed by a member of the Registrar’s office staff and do not need to take any action until you receive our email.
In light of these changes it is particularly important that students approaching graduation meet with their adviser to map out a plan.

New General Education Requirements

In academic year 2019-2020 the university will adopt a new general education model that will replace the current Liberal Arts Core Curriculum (LACC) model. The new requirements will apply to all students with a catalog year of 2019-2020 or beyond.
