Academics at Columbia

The GS bachelor’s degree combines breadth of study in a range of subjects and disciplines, represented by the core requirements, with specialization in a major field of study. Students are required to complete 124 points with a minimum grade point average of 2.0, are required to complete a major in order to graduate. The 124 points are distributed among three general categories: core requirements, major requirements, and electives.

Students in the School of General Studies are expected to familiarize themselves with GS academic policies. Students seeking clarity on academic policies relevant to or beyond those stated on the GS website should consult with their GS advisors.
