Dear 100 Hour Board,

If one finishes all their major/degree requirements, AND all the required GEs, BUT doesn't have 120 credits, (say they are 3 credits short) can they still graduate or do they have to take those last 3 credits?!

A: Dear Curious ~

You still have to take those last 3 credits. There's a reason why they say 120 credits is the minimum. In fact, in my graduation exit interview, they specifically looked to see how many credits I had. (I was much closer to the 180 end of things.) She told me that they often have trouble with people trying to graduate with too few credits, so she has to check to be sure.

So take some fun classes. Bowling, basket weaving, book binding, tennis, flexibility, cooking, etc. I'm of the opinion that you should always have at least one fun class per semester.
