Admission to either Bachelor of Science degree requires regular admission to Georgia Southern University. Students must be eligible for College Algebra (MATH   1111) and Composition I (ENGL   1101).

Progression Requirements

  • Students must attain a grade of C or better in all required courses in Area D, Area F, and the major area of study, and must maintain an overall minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. However, students who are earning a GPA less than 2.5 should strongly consider another major, as most graduate programs will require a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • Students who receive a D or F in courses in Area D, Area F or the major area of study are allowed to repeat these courses only once. Receiving a D or F in any of these courses more than once will result in dismissal from the program.
  • Students presently enrolled at Georgia Southern who are seeking admission to the Rehabilitation Science Bachelor's Degree program or students who are wishing to transfer into the Rehabilitation Science Bachelor's Degree program should have both an overall and science GPA of 2.5 or higher.
