Undergraduate Catalog 2016-2017

General Education and Degree Requirements

Each student seeking a baccalaureate degree must complete the appropriate general education requirements, the requirements of a major, and a minimum of 120 credit hours. All students entering the College with fewer than 24 hours of college credit must complete the Introduction to College Life and Liberal Arts Tradition (PDMT 1101) as a part of the 120 credit hours. A student may choose to complete a minor as part of the 120 required hours. Each course in a student’s declared major, minor or concentration must be passed with a grade of “C” or higher.

Students entering Piedmont with substantial language ability (at least of two years of the same foreign language in high school with at least a “B” average) and/or established placement from another institution may complete only the 1102-level course to fulfill the foreign language general education requirement. Additionally, if a student successfully completes a 2000-level or higher course in a foreign language, the foreign language requirement is considered satisfied.
