Graduation Requirements for Ashford University

Not only is graduation a time of great excitement, it’s a celebration of enormous achievement and effort. While a full-time student can often finish an associate degree in two years and a bachelor’s degree in four years, those completing their degree at an online school often have many other factors to consider – such as a full-time job or growing family. 

Graduation Requirements for Ashford University’s Online Degrees

Each level of degree takes a different amount of time and credit requirements to achieve. While time to graduation can be affected by transfer credits and a student’s ability to take courses uninterrupted, the credits required to earn a degree are standardized. 

  • Online associate degrees require 67 credits and a minimum 2.00 GPA 
  • Online bachelor’s degrees require 120 credits and a minimum 2.00 GPA
