Student Success Center - General Studies

General Studies Degrees

You can earn one of two General Studies degrees: an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS). If you are earning one of these general studies degrees and want to declare General Studies as your major you should periodically meet with an advisor in the Student Success Center. To sign off for General Studies degree graduation, the graduation application is available through you eWeber student portal. Keep in mind the difference between General Studies and general education. If you are seeking a major other than General Studies, you should seek general education advice from your college advisor, not an advisor in the Student Success Center.
