The Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs may admit the holder of, or candidate for, a baccalaureate degree to candidacy for a second baccalaureate degree. Students applying for another degree must also meet any second degree requirements of the School in which they are candidates.
The second degree may be awarded either simultaneously with the first degree, or may be awarded at a later time.
Second degree awarded simultaneously with first degree:
When such permission is granted, the candidate who simultaneously completes two baccalaureate degrees must complete all of the requirements of each degree.
Second degree awarded to a continuing student:
When such permission is granted, the candidate who, after receiving a first baccalaureate degree, remains continuously enrolled at Indiana University East must complete all of the requirements of the second degree.
Second degree awarded to a student who graduates from Indiana University East and then returns to complete a second degree:
When such permission is granted, the candidate who has completed a first baccalaureate degree at Indiana University East, and then returns at a later time, must earn a minimum of 30 additional credit hours from Indiana University East, must complete all of the requirements of the second degree, and must meet new general education and program requirements, if any.
Final approval for the applicability of courses taken for both degrees rests with the individual School or program awarding the degree.
