To receive a Bachelor of Science degree from the School of Continuing & Professional Studies (CAPS), students must be admitted to degree candidacy; complete a minimum of 120 units of college-level work with a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or higher in all courses taken; and satisfy basic, distribution, major, and residency requirements. Students must also complete a field of study with grades of C- or better and an overall 2.0 GPA in all field of study courses.

The total number of units required for each field of study varies according to the department. At least half of the units for the field of study must be completed at Washington University. At least 30 units of advanced courses overall must be completed at Washington University. Up to 12 credits of study for a CAPS bachelor’s degree may be taken for pass/fail credit. (This limit does not include courses that are available only as pass/fail.) We encourage students to use their time at Washington University to augment the field of study with related course work and to explore many different areas of knowledge.
