The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree consists of 45 credit hours. You must have at least 75 prior credit hours before enrolling in the BGS program.
Your 45 BGS credit hours must come from two or three different academic departments.

You may already have a head start. The BGS program is a popular choice for transfers because it has fewer specific courses.
Often, your transfer credits are more effective in the BGS program than a traditional degree program.
You can receive credit for all courses completed at regionally accredited institutions. We’ll help you determine how your courses will transfer.
Maybe you started college but never finished. Maybe you haven’t found the right major.
You’re not alone. In the past 10 years, nearly 5,000 students have left MSU without a degree.
