Second Baccalaureate

Students who received their first degree at UNC and wish to declare an intent to complete a second baccalaureate degree must complete a Change of Major form available in each academic school. Upon completion of the form and approval by the appropriate programs, the student's records will be changed to reflect the intent to complete a second baccalaureate degree.

In order for the classification change to be approved for a particular semester and, thus, allow the student to pay undergraduate rather than the graduate tuition rates, the form must be sent from the appropriate program to the Registrar's Office by Wednesday of the third full week of the first semester the student is enrolled in courses to count toward the second baccalaureate degree. Applications submitted after this point in the semester will not affect the student's classification (undergraduate, second baccalaureate degree) until the following semester. Students must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of UNC credit to qualify for the second bachelor's degree.

Students who have completed their baccalaureate degree at another institution and seek a second baccalaureate degree at UNC must complete an admission application through the UNC Admissions Office and are required to pay undergraduate tuition rates.
