Graduating with a Second Degree

The Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs may admit the holder of, or candidate for, a baccalaureate to candidacy for a second degree at the same level.

For baccalaureate students, a minimum of 30 additional hours in residency, beyond the previous degree requirements, is required for each additional baccalaureate degree.

Students must also meet the requirements of the department or school in which they are a candidate, since it has final approval for the applicability for cross-listed courses. Students should check with the individual departments or schools for more information.
