University Residency Requirement for Undergraduate Students

There are two components to the University's Residency requirement (Policy 6-101, Section III, part D):

  • Component 1: All undergraduate candidates must earn at least 30 semester credit hours from the University of Utah
  • Component 2: At least 20 of the last 30 semester credit hours earned toward a student's degree must be earned from the University of Utah

Note:  Although the residency requirement allows students to transfer up to 10 of their last 30 credits, students who are transferring credits during their last term should apply to graduate the following term to allow time for transcripts to arrive and be evaluated by the Office of Admissions.
