Academic Catalog 2020-2021

Slippery Rock University

Residency

To qualify for graduation, all students must complete 30 of their final 60 credits in residence at Slippery Rock University. In addition, at least 24 credits of upper division course work must be earned in residence at Slippery Rock University.   If students declare a minor or certificate, 6 credits from the minor or certificate must be earned in residence at Slippery Rock University. 

Effective with undergraduate students entering January 2010 and thereafter, at least 50% of all major credits must be earned at Slippery Rock University or another PASSHE university. Students originally admitted before January 2010, even if they leave the university and are readmitted after January 2010, will not be affected by this new policy.

Collaborative programs will be identified such that residency can be met consistent with the collaborative agreement.
