The degree audit is your guide to completing a degree at Park University. You will find all the requirements for your particular degree program listed on your degree audit. You can view your degree audit in your MyPark account under the "Student" tab. We recommend that you view your degree audit in MyPark prior to speaking with an Enrollment Counselor. An Enrollment Services Counselor will be happy to review your degree audit with you and answer any questions that you have.
When you review your degree audit you will find it is divided up into several sections. Those areas and their requirements are listed below:
Overall Total hours (120-122 hrs)
At least 122 for a Bachelor of Arts (BA)
At least 120 for a Bachelor of Science (BS)
It is important to remember that you may earn more than 120-122 overall credit hours, but you may still need to complete the specific course requirements in each section of the degree audit in order to graduate.
Upper Division hours (45 hrs)
45 hours of Upper Division course work is required for most degrees. Any 300 – 400 level course listed on your degree audit counts as upper division. It is possible that some of your transfer hours which were upper division classes at your previous college/university might be equivalent to a Park University lower division course and will transfer as lower division.
Core Requirements / Major Courses
Core courses are the courses relating directly to your major. For instance, if you are majoring in Management, core courses are the hours listed under the Management Core Requirement section. The number of required courses in your core area varies based on your selected degree program.

Once you have completed all of the specific requirements above, you may still need additional courses in order to meet the "Overall Total Hours" requirement. If so, you are free to choose elective classes based upon your interests or career plans. Frequently, transfer students have some classes from other colleges or universities that transfer in as electives.
