Entry Standing Level
A General Education Entry Standing Level is assigned at the time of entry to Bethel and determines which General Education requirements a student must fulfill and the number of interims that must be completed. The General Education Entry Standing level will not be changed from the original level assigned unless a student leaves Bethel and returns after a period of two or more years, during which they earned credits at another accredited college or university and did not complete any courses at Bethel.
Students who already have a Bethel Bachelor’s degree and who are completing a second degree or major are considered to have met all General Education requirements. They need only meet the requirements for the major, including the major residency requirement.
