Students who have satisfactorily completed the requirements for more than one bachelor’s degree may, upon recommendation of their deans, be awarded two bachelor’s degrees at the same or at different commencement exercises. To earn two degrees, students register in one department and, with the cooperation of the second department, work out their program to cover the degree requirements of both.
Students must file an approved Plan/Subplan Change Form with Registration and Records.
If both departments want to formalize a blend of their requirements as an advising option that will illustrate for students an efficient plan for completing both degrees, they may do so by submitting a proposal via minor action memo and display whose approval will result in a distinct Automated Degree Audit (ADA) that the students may follow. Approval of a double degree does not signify the approval of the distinct degree; it simply acknowledges an efficient course of study a student may follow to receive both degrees. Contact the Office of Undergraduate Courses and Curricula for formalizing a dual major.
