General Policy

The option to pursue two baccalaureate degrees simultaneously enhances and broad­ens the education of certain students at the undergraduate level. The program is only for those students who can adequately handle the requirements for two differ­ent degrees and who can reasonably allocate the additional time and effort needed for the program.


1. Students desiring a dual degree must petition the college dean or deans in­volved for permission to pursue a dual degree.

2. If the student is planning to take one degree in a highly prescribed curricu­lum, she or he should register as a freshman in the appropriate school or college for that curriculum.

3. It is expected that a candidate for two degrees will complete 32 credits beyond those required for the first degree.

4. It is expected that students will maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade-point average.

5. Students can earn more than one Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, provided that each degree is in a different field. Students cannot earn more than one Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree.


As soon as a student is accepted as a candidate for two degrees, the appropriate dean(s) will appoint supervisors for each of the proposed majors. The supervisors and the student will work out a basic course plan for the two degrees and inform the appro­priate dual degree dean(s) of the plan. The supervisors will maintain joint control over the student’s academic program. The deans’ offices and the supervisors will re­ceive copies of the grade reports and other records for students pursuing two degrees.

10. No Peter T. Paul College course may be taken on a pass/fail basis by a student majoring in business administration, economics, or hotel administration.

11. Pass/fail and credit/fail courses are not graded courses.
