Double Major Policy


Return to Undergraduate Academic Policies and Procedures Return to: Undergraduate Academic Policies and Procedures

Baccalaureate degree-seeking students may simultaneously complete two distinct majors with the approval of the appropriate Department Chairs, School Dean(s), and the Office for Academic Affairs. Students must complete the double major form prior to entering their junior year (i.e., prior to completing 61 academic credits). Students requesting a double major must be making satisfactory academic progress (with regard to cumulative credits earned) and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75.

Students pursuing a double major must complete all specified All College Curriculum requirements and all specified major and related area requirements for both majors. Requirements that are common to both majors will be considered satisfied. Courses required for either major may not be used for a minor. If the two majors lead to two distinct degrees (B.A., B.S., and/or B.L.S.), students must, in addition, meet the residency requirement for each degree. At least 30 academic credits must be earned in residence to qualify for any one degree from the College.

Depending on the majors, more than four years (eight semesters) may be needed to complete all requirements. However, students must complete all requirements of both majors within six years (twelve semesters), which is the maximum time frame allowed for completion of a bachelor degree by the College’s satisfactory academic progress standard. Students should note the College’s course overload policy: students must have a CGPA of 3.00 or higher, the permission of their advisor and clearance from their School Dean(s) and the Office of Academic Affairs to carry a one-course overload in any given semester. Credits taken during the summer are not included in 12-semester time frame for completing a bachelor degree.
