The online Bachelor of General Studies is designed as a pathway for students with college credit to complete their bachelor’s degree while balancing other responsibilities. This program is not open to first-time freshmen.
You will need to provide transcripts from all previous institutions along with your application.
For the Bachelor of General Studies, all applicants must be eligible to return to the most recent institution attended, and have either:
- earned an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution,
OR have earned 45 hours or more with:
- A cumulative GPA of 2.25 or higher (excluding developmental/remedial courses), AND
- Successful completion of non-remedial college-level freshman English and non-remedial college algebra.
If you have previously attended UL Lafayette, you’re a re-entry student.
- Submit transcripts of all academic work since your last date of enrollment at UL Lafayette.
- Have at least a 1.5 cumulative GPA.
Because courses in this program will only be available online, the program may not be available to all applicants. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and its online programs must be in compliance in every state where a student is located. (Visit the Undergraduate Admissions page to learn more.) International students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.
