A minimum of 120 hours is required for graduation and at least a 2.00 GPA in the major and overall. All students must file an application with the Registrar’s upon the completion of at least 90 semester hours. A minimum period of one year in residence is required for graduation and the last 30 semester hours of credit earned toward the degree must be earned in residence at Huston-Tillotson. There is only one Commencement Convocation held at the University and that takes place in the Spring.

The second degree must be different from the first and have its own distinctive major. Completion of an additional emphasis area to be added to a degree does not meet the requirements for a second degree.
