Second Bachelor’s Degree

Students who wish to obtain a second bachelor’s degree must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or an equivalent credential from a foreign institution recognized by the Office of Graduate Admissions.

To be eligible for admission to pursue a second bachelor’s degree, the student must meet all of the current requirements for the second bachelor’s degree, including 12 hours of advanced courses in a field different from the major of the first bachelor’s degree. Specific requirements for the second bachelor’s degree are found in the current undergraduate catalog.

NOTE:  Transfer course evaluations are processed only after you have been admitted for the term in which you are applying.  Advising is provided by the Post-baccalaureate Advisor.

Step 1  Complete the Second Bachelor’s Degree Application.
The application fee is $50, non-refundable.  The application fee may be paid at the time of application or it may be paid by check or money order, payable to UNT Dallas and mailed to the address below.  Please check the application deadlines listed on the application.

Additionally, a $25 late registration fee may be assessed if you apply and are admitted during the Late Registration Period.

Step 2  Request official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.

Contact the registrar’s office at each institution. Most institutions will send transcripts directly to us.  Or, submit the unopened transcripts you already have using the addresses below:
