Second Baccalaureate Degree

Monmouth University graduates with a baccalaureate degree desiring to return to Monmouth University for an additional baccalaureate degree must satisfy, by taking additional courses, a minimum of thirty-two (32) additional credits of the curriculum requirements in effect at time of readmission and declaration of the major. Any student who has completed a degree program at Monmouth University will be considered to have met the residency requirement, but transfer credits taken subsequent to the first degree program may not be applied toward the second baccalaureate degree.

Students with baccalaureate degrees from other institutions who wish to enter Monmouth to receive a second baccalaureate degree will be accepted on a case-by-case basis and must satisfy the existing policy for transfer students. Please see the Admission section of this catalog for more details. Students may not pursue a second baccalaureate degree in the same major. Students requesting second baccalaureate degrees in a major where a graduate degree exists will likely be denied acceptance into the second baccalaureate degree upon School/department review. If an application for a second baccalaureate is considered, only credits relevant to the second baccalaureate degree will be evaluated for designated course credit; all other credits will be designated as free electives. Students enrolling for a second baccalaureate must satisfy all Monmouth general education requirements. A minimum of thirty-two (32) curriculum credits must be completed to receive a baccalaureate degree.
