To establish requirements by which graduate students may pursue concurrent graduate degrees.




Graduate students wishing to pursue two graduate degrees simultaneously at UNF must apply to each individual program of interest using separate applications and complete normal UNF graduate degree requirements. Applicants must meet all admissions requirements for each individual program of interest by the program deadlines for admission consideration.

A second graduate degree may not be earned in the same CIP (Classification of Instructional Program) code as the first degree.


The following requirements will be applicable to graduate students in pursuit of concurrent graduate degrees:

  • Completion of a minimum of 30 credit hours in the primary graduate degree.
  • Completion of a minimum of 18 credit hours in the secondary graduate degree which are not part of the primary degree.
  • At least 18 credit hours in both degrees must be taken at the 6000 level.
  • No more than 15 UNF credit hours from one graduate degree program may be applied toward another graduate degree program.
    • These credits can include no more than nine (9) credits of post baccalaureate work at UNF.

Additional requirements may be implemented by graduate program departments in conjunction with the requirements set forth by this policy.


Student pursuing concurrent graduate degrees must complete 24 credit hours at UNF to meet residency requirements.


Transfer credits from institutions outside of UNF must adhere to the Transfer of Credit Policy and cannot compromise the requirements set forth in this policy regarding the credits used for concurrent degrees.
