Baccalaureate Degree Requirements

A baccalaureate degree (also called a "bachelor's degree") is earned upon the completion of at least 120 college semester hours. In order to earn the degree, students must also meet a series of course requirements, explained in detail in the numbered sections within this chapter. Students may choose to graduate under the requirements in force at the time they entered the UH System (provided there has not been a break in enrollment of more than one semester, excluding summer), when they entered UH Hilo, or when they graduate. For more information, see the Catalog Choice and Retroactivity policy.

In Fall 2011, a new set of General Education Core requirements and Integrative requirements went into effect.
