Catalog 2014-2015

Second Bachelor’s Degree Requirements

A student who has earned a bachelor’s degree at UT or any other regionally accredited college or university may earn a second bachelor’s degree from UT.

For the second degree, at least 31 credit hours must be earned in residence at UT, all earned after the previous bachelor’s degree was awarded. No credit earned prior to the awarding of the previous degree may be used to fulfill any part of the 31 credit hours required for the second degree.

The student must take all the courses required for the second major. However, courses required for the major that were taken for credit as part of the first degree do not need to be repeated. At least 15 credit hours applicable toward the major in the second degree must be earned at UT.

If remaining major courses needed for the second degree do not total at least 31 credit hours, elective courses must be taken to complete this requirement.

A continuing University of Tampa student who concurrently fulfills the requirements for two majors that do not have the same degree designation, and who wishes to be issued a diploma for each degree, must do the following:

  1. Fulfill all University requirements for both majors (as specified in the University Catalog).
  2. Earn a minimum of 155 credits.

Graduation Honors will be calculated as usual for the continuing undergraduate student earning two bachelor’s degrees concurrently. For details, please refer to the section on Graduation Honors in the chapter titled Academic Policies and Procedures in this catalog.
