Rice's policy
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__ga.rice.edu_non-2Dtraditional-2Dstudents_second-2Dfour-2Dyear-2Dbachelors-2Ddeg&d=DwICAg&c=oqyuZuih6ykib6aKiBq22_bich4AVfYGoLertJN0bEc&r=5cwyr3ZZzjmRsIsXglBYqQ&m=YMW_3yMqQM1T08g99lq5CLfM4wV7WF1yMeXqaBqdPEE&s=1ooERAL0PpnUtSB7RZqjSSRzldaT7W8ohD2BCFaTOmU&e=
ree-alumni/):

 

Rice alumni with a Rice bachelor's degree have the option of earning a
second four-year bachelor's degree at Rice in a different discipline. In
addition to being in a different discipline, the second degree must also be
a different bachelor's degree from the one already held; for example, the
holder of a BA degree may pursue coursework leading to a BS or BMus degree.

 

Rice alumni with a Rice bachelor's degree desiring to earn a different
four-year bachelor's degree must:

*	Be accepted for the major by the major department
*	Fulfill all requirements for the second degree
*	Complete at least 30 additional semester hours at Rice (must include
two full-time fall and/or spring semesters) upon their return to Rice and
beyond their first bachelor's degree (these hours are applied to the second
bachelor's degree)

 

The entire undergraduate record for these students continues cumulatively.
Those seeking admission to this program should complete the Second Four-Year
Bachelor's Degree Application available on the Office of the Registrar
<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__registrar.rice.edu_online-5Fforms_&d=DwICAg&c=oqyuZuih6ykib6aKiBq22_bich4AVfYGoLertJN0bEc&r=5cwyr3ZZzjmRsIsXglBYqQ&m=YMW_3yMqQM1T08g99lq5CLfM4wV7WF1yMeXqaBqdPEE&s=nnpFFKTQBqje7fYDNH-FILl0inE3lAYfjxwhHwYa9ro&e=>  website. This application should
include a written statement specifying the proposed major and course program
for the second degree, a supporting letter from the chair of the major
department, and an explanation of the student's reasons for returning to
Rice for a second degree. This letter of application and paperwork should be
submitted to the Office of the Registrar no later than August 1 for the fall
semester and November 1 for the spring semester.

 

Eligible students considering this option should note that coursework
completed at Rice as visiting students can only be applied to the second
degree with the approval of the major department for that degree.
Additionally, coursework completed at Rice as Visiting Post Baccalaureates
can only be applied to the second degree with the approval of the major
department for that degree and the dean of graduate and postdoctoral
studies.

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.
