The Bachelor of General Studies Degree (BGS) is a flexible degree program available to part-time and full-time students who are 25 years of age or older. The BGS is especially appropriate for those who have gained significant learning through work and life experience.

Credit requirements for the BGS degree can be met through college coursework (taken at Eastern and other regionally accredited colleges) in combination with a maximum of 60 credits of nontraditional learning such as Eastern's Credit for Lifelong Learning (CLL) program (open to those 25 years and older), CLEP (College Level Examination Program) and DSST tests, and American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations for military training.

Upon entry to the BGS program, each student completes a learning agreement with a Continuing Education advisor. This agreement outlines the student's proposed plan of study and ensures that all degree and University requirements will be met.  There is no time limit on when prior transfer courses were taken.  A minimum of 30 credits must be earned through actual coursework completed with Eastern.

For more information about the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree, call the School of Continuing Education at 860-465-0206. 

 

What the School of Continuing Education Does!


As an integral part of Eastern Connecticut State University, the School of Continuing Education (SCE) has a multi-faceted role in serving the residents of Connecticut.


SCE is dedicated to advising adults who want to return to college to finish their degree or attend college for the first time. The advisors in the School of Continuing Education are experts at assisting part-time and Bachelor of General Studies students.  Our Fast Track Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) Degree Completion Program was designed for busy individuals who are at least 25 years old and who already have 60 or more prior college credits. The Fast Track is the quickest, most efficient way for most people to finish their bachelor's degree. In addition, you can accelerate your degree in many ways, through Credit for Life Long Learning, Fast Track courses, and by taking CLEP and DSST tests.
 

In addition, SCE runs a comprehensive winter and summer session schedule with such choices as online classes and accelerated classes in one-week, two-week, three-week and five- or six-week formats. Many students accelerate their degree by taking these accelerated formats.


In addition to college credit courses, the School of Continuing Education offers thousands of professional, non-credit courses through its affiliation with Gatlin Educational Services/Ed2Go.  Every fall and spring, the school makes available the SHRM® Learning System course for those seeking to take the Society of Human Resources examination.

SCE provides additional learning opportunities to all Eastern students with:

·         Off-campus sites (Groton, Sub Base, and Manchester and Capital Community Colleges) 

·         EasternOnline

·         Global Field Courses, which are short-term study abroad experiences

The School of Continuing Education also manages facility rentals to organizations in the community.

If you have questions, please, call (860) 465-0206.
