Second Degree

To qualify for a second baccalaureate degree, graduates of Centenary must present a minimum of thirty additional credit hours. Students with a baccalaureate degree from another institution must meet all core requirements, either by acceptable credits transferred from the first degree or by work at Centenary, and successfully complete a minimum of sixty hours in residence. Students must meet the degree requirements listed under the Degree Requirements section, and meet all requirements of the catalogue of the year they enrolled for the second degree and complete them within five years. No student is eligible for more than two undergraduate degrees at Centenary. Students who satisfy all of the requirements for a second degree may have both degrees conferred in a single ceremony and will receive two diplomas. Students may lose eligibility for undergraduate financial aid once they earn a baccalaureate degree. They should check with the Financial Aid Office before determining whether to earn two baccalaureate degrees simultaneously.

The total number of “Pass-Fail” hours under both first and second degrees may not exceed sixteen credit hours. (See exceptions under “Pass/Fail Courses.”) Students wishing to apply to a second major who have already taken a Pass-Fail course under the first degree should consult the chairperson of their major department.
