Undergraduate Degree Programs

Concurrent and Sequential Majors

At the baccalaureate or associate degree level, students may be approved for admission to more than one major under the Concurrent Majors program or the Sequential Majors program. A Concurrent Majors program is one in which students take courses to concurrently meet the requirements of at least two majors, with graduation for all majors in the program occurring during the same semester. A Sequential Majors program is one in which a student has graduated and then re-enrolls for another major.

Any student requesting more than one major program shall, for each major, meet the same acceptance standards and graduation requirements as met by all other students. Colleges and departments may identify and should publish any combintations of majors that would not be approved for more than one major program. In general, an undergraduate student may not combine a general major with a departmental major within the same college.

See Senate Legislation 60-00, 60-10, 60-20.
