General Studies: Diploma


The General Studies Diploma program at KPU has been designed as an alternative to both the applied and University Studies programs. It enables students to design a framework for studies independent of occupational or University Studies requirements.

Students may select any undergraduate level courses in the calendar that they are particularly interested in and for which the prerequisites can be met. Some of the courses offer transfer credit to a university, or other institutions.

This program is not available for admission.  Students may apply to graduate once they have completed sufficient requirements.

Program Requirements

To qualify for a General Studies Diploma, a student must complete a minimum of 20 undergraduate level courses, totalling 60 or more credits.

Credential Awarded

Upon successful completion of this program, students are eligible to receive a Diploma in General Studies.
