Second Degree

Students seeking a second degree from the University must fulfill all requirements for the second degree, including the core curriculum, as well as completing additional hours in residence to equal one-fourth of the total hours required for that degree. As most degrees require 124 total hours, the additional semester hours in residence required would usually be 31 hours. Students who already have a baccalaureate degree cannot simply add a major at a later date; they must complete the second degree requirements for that degree. These guidelines apply to students who are seeking two degrees concurrently and alumni returning for a second degree.
