RMU has residency requirements for undergraduate degree programs. This is necessary since, in granting a degree, RMU is certifying students' knowledge and skills to prospective employers, to other universities, and to concerned individuals.
Courses that comply with this residency requirement are those offered by the University at any of its approved sites using any approved method of delivery. Courses that are part of a formal collaborative agreement (e.g., PCHE) are considered to be in-residence.
To be eligible for graduation, students must complete their final 30 credits and at least 51 percent of their "major area of study" at Robert Morris University. The "major area of study" is defined for the BSBA degree as all courses in the business core and major concentration. For all other bachelor degrees, the "major area of study" is defined as courses in the major and/or concentration.
Undergraduate Residency Requirements Procedure
Requests for exceptions to this policy must be referred to the appropriate department head by the student in a timely manner to ensure compliance with residency requirements.
