TWU's is similar.  See below from our catalog page:  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__catalog.twu.edu_undergraduate_academic-2Dinformation_graduation-2Drequirements_&d=DwIFAg&c=oqyuZuih6ykib6aKiBq22_bich4AVfYGoLertJN0bEc&r=5cwyr3ZZzjmRsIsXglBYqQ&m=2v3B0Yy8QmqPhQh-QjSpALae7E65AgzOMf1v6hOji1M&s=PZvokFJu0kWgPVJLLodPUfrMNtTVAq5_-LxyzC4p0xE&e=

Double Major

Students may earn a degree with a double major by completing all requirements set forth by each major. To qualify as a double major, both majors must be the same degree type (BA, BS, BBA, etc.) and be awarded in the same semester. Two majors that do not share a common degree type constitute two separate degrees (see Second Baccalaureate Degree requirements). If a student in pursuit of a double major chooses to graduate with one major before completing both, the student will have to reapply to the institution to pursue a second baccalaureate degree (see Second Baccalaureate Degree requirements).

Students earning a degree with a double major will receive a single diploma listing the degree (Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, etc.) with both majors. The academic transcript will show a single degree posting with both majors listed.

Second Baccalaureate Degree Conferred at the Same Commencement

In departments where the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees are awarded in the same field, a student completing the prescribed courses in one of the majors and earning a minimum of 135 semester credit hours, 42 advanced hours, and all the requirements of the second baccalaureate degree may receive both degrees at the same commencement.

When a second baccalaureate degree is desired in a field other than that covered by the first degree, the student must earn a minimum of 30 additional semester credit hours, including 12 advanced hours in the second field, and must meet all catalog requirements for the second degree.

Second Baccalaureate Degree

When an additional baccalaureate degree is desired in a field other than that covered by the first degree, the student must meet all the catalog requirements for the second major.  A student who pursues an additional bachelor's degree must:
*         hold a valid bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university,
*         complete a minimum of 30 additional semester credit hours in residence at TWU, including half the major or a minimum of 15 advanced hours; and
*         complete the state-mandated credits in history and government if they were not completed for the first degree.

Courses taken for prior baccalaureate degrees may be used for the next degree except for the required 30 additional semester credit hours.  These degree requirements apply to students holding a baccalaureate degree from TWU or other accredited institution.

Hi Amy,

Here is UTA's information on multiple degrees:

While a student should carefully consider with an academic advisor if obtaining multiple undergraduate degrees is necessary for a given career path, it is possible for students to earn more than one undergraduate degree under the certain conditions and limitations.
DOUBLE MAJOR
A student who fulfills the specified requirements for two different majors under a single degree, simultaneously prior to graduation, completes a double major.  For example, a student may complete a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science - both B.A. degrees - or a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Biology - both B.S. degrees. Prerequisite and field of study courses are required to complete both majors.
When applying for graduation, a student should note on the application that he/she will be completing an additional major. One diploma is issued and both majors are recorded on a student's transcript and diploma. Also, upon graduation, a student can attend multiple commencement ceremonies if the majors span across different colleges, though both majors are announced at any ceremony and college-specific policies apply for each ceremony.
DUAL DEGREE
A student who fulfills the specified requirements for two different majors from different degrees, simultaneously prior to graduation, will complete a dual degree.  For example, a student may complete a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations - a B.S. degree and a B.A. degree.  The student must complete a minimum additional 30 credit hours beyond the degree plan with the greater required credit hours and also complete all prerequisite and field of study courses for both degrees.
Upon graduation, the student must complete two graduation applications (one application for each degree) and pay the processing fee for each degree. Upon graduation a student can attend multiple commencement ceremonies if the majors span across different colleges, though both degrees are announced at any ceremony and college-specific policies apply for each ceremony.
SECOND BACCALAUREATE DEGREE
A student who earns a bachelor degree subsequent to receiving the first bachelor degree will complete a second baccalaureate degree.  The student must complete at least 30 credit hours in residence, above and beyond the minimum number of hours to complete the first degree.  One diploma is issued and the new degree is added to the student's transcript.

Good Evening, Everyone!

Below is UMHB's residency requirement for a second degree.  For those institutions that will issue a second degree, what (if any) is the residency requirement for the 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 complete additional semester hours in residence equal to one-fourth of the total semester hours required for the second degree.  As most degrees require 124 total semester hours, the additional semester hours in residence typically would be 31 semester hours.  These additional semester hours in residence must be distinct from the first degree.  In other words, the additional semester hours in residence for the second degree cannot be counted toward any requirements for the first degree. These guidelines apply to students who are seeking two degrees concurrently and alumni returning for a second degree.
