Pathways to a Degree

On the main site, you can find an overview of the CGS curriculum.

Continuation from CGS to other BU schools and colleges

Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher, have earned a minimum of 60 credits, completed all CGS core course requirements, and have proper electives are eligible to continue into one of the undergraduate degree-granting schools and colleges at the University. Such continuation does not hold for the College of Fine Arts, which requires an audition or the submission of a portfolio upon which eligibility of transfer is evaluated. Students with a cumulative grade point average below 2.00 will not continue into a degree program at Boston University.
