Additional Baccalaureate Degrees

A student enrolled at Michigan Technological University who is currently pursuing (or already has) a Baccalaureate degree or degrees can obtain an additional Baccalaureate degree from Michigan Tech. Unlike a double major, an additional Baccalaureate degree (or degrees) will grant the student an entirely separate diploma. Students must initiate the process for obtaining an additional degree by completing a degree audit with their additional degree advisor.  Students pursuing a Baccalaureate degree from Michigan Tech can earn an additional degree at the same time if they meet the following requirements:

  • Satisfy the degree requirements for each Baccalaureate program.
  • Earn at least 32 of the credit hours required for the additional degree through Michigan Tech without having applied those credits to any other minor or Baccalaureate degree program. The academic unit offering the additional degree can allow course substitutions provided that the 32 credit hour minimum is maintained.

An enrolled student who has already earned a Baccalaureate degree (from Michigan Tech or a college or university accepted by Michigan Tech) can obtain a Baccalaureate degree or degrees from Michigan Tech if they:

  • Complete an Additional Baccalaureate Degree Completion Form with their advisor.
  • Satisfy the degree requirements for the additional Baccalaureate program.
  • Earn at least 32 of the credit hours required for each additional degree through Michigan Tech without having applied those credits to any other minor or Baccalaureate degree program.  The academic unit offering the additional degree can allow course substitutions provided that the 32 credit hour minimum is maintained.

A student interested in getting an additional degree should first express their interest to the additional degree's department. A student should then complete a Curriculum Add/Drop form, have their academic advisor sign it, then return the form to the Registrar's Office.

Students who have obtained a prior baccalaureate degree must complete an Additional Baccalaureate Degree Completion Form with an academic advisor from the degree-granting department. 

Students pursuing two or more baccalaureate degrees concurrently must complete a degree audit form with an academic advisor within the additional degree's department.
