I. OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE

To establish a policy regarding students pursuing and satisfying requirements of more than one major or degree.

II. STATEMENT OF POLICY
Students must indicate whether they are pursuing a double major or dual degrees on the application for graduation. Once a degree has been awarded, subsequent course work cannot be added to create a second degree, major, or minor; nor may any changes be made to courses or grades except due to administrator error in recording.

Double Majors: Students pursuing a single baccalaureate degree and who apply for and satisfy the requirements of two majors within the same college of division will be awarded two diplomas and both majors will be indicated on their permanent record/transcript. 

Dual Degrees: Students pursuing two different baccalaureate degrees (e.g., BA and BS) who apply for and satisfy the requirements of both degrees will be awarded two diplomas. Students must meet the requirements for both degrees and have the approval of both colleges.

Under certain circumstances, students may be awarded a baccalaureate degree at the same time they are awarded a master’s degree.
