Second Degree Students
A second degree student is one who has completed a baccalaureate or associate degree and wishes to work toward another degree at the same level or a lower level (i.e. baccalaureate to baccalaureate, associate to associate, baccalaureate to associate.) Students who complete an associate degree and then continue to pursue a baccalaureate are working toward a higher degree and are not considered to be "second degree" students.
Students who wish to apply for a second degree must satisfy the following criteria:
- The second degree must be in a different and unrelated discipline from the first degree.
- The student must complete 32 credits beyond those already taken toward the first degree.
- Second degree students must enroll for at least two full semesters in order to meet the one year residency requirement.
- Students who have earned a Baccalaureate degree must file an online Transfer application here in order to be considered to pursue a second degree.
