Hope College Fall 2023 Curricular Changes
Beginning in fall 2023, two major curricular changes will be implemented: 1) A revised set of general education requirements, called the Anchor Plan, will go into effect. 2) Four-credit courses that used to meet three hours per week will now meet three hours per week and change to three credits.
The college has developed transition plans (BA/BS, BMu, BSN) so that no student will be prohibited from completing their degree on time. New and continuing students (must be enrolled in the fall 2023 semester) will need to complete a minimum of 120 credits (currently 126) to complete a Hope College degree. December 2023 will be the first degree date where this new rule applies. More information is available on this FAQ document for students.
The mission of the Registrar’s Office is to provide exceptional service to the college community in support of the mission, values and culture of the Hope College. As the stewards of the college’s academic records, we ensure their accuracy, integrity and security. As partners in education, we facilitate learning and academic progress that encourages students to assume ownership and responsibility for their education. We promote equity and fairness by supporting the development and consistent application of current policies. Read the full Registrar’s Office Code of Ethics.
We are responsible for maintaining your educational record and coordinating academic advising and registration. We assist you in creating your class schedule and make sure you have the resources to stay on track for graduation.
We will report your grades, process your transcripts and help you make changes to your schedule.
