Second Degree Policy / Completing a Second Major
A student who has already completed a bachelor's degree may be admitted to Central Connecticut State University for a second undergraduate degree or a second undergraduate major within the student's original degree program.
A transfer student (whose earlier degree is not from CCSU) must satisfy all degree, major, minor, general education and residence requirements. Transfer students are required to have a minimum of 45 credits at CCSU in order to receive a bachelor's degree.
A student who already holds a bachelor's degree from CCSU may complete a second major within the original degree program. Although there is no minimum credit hour requirement for a second major, all curriculum requirements in effect at the time of re-admission must be completed. Upon completion the
student will receive only an additional notation on the transcript; additional diplomas will not be printed,
and students will not participate in commencement ceremonies. Students in this category should inform
the Office of Registrar of their intentions soon after re-admission.
A student who already holds a bachelor's degree from CCSU and wishes to complete a second degree,
may do so by completing all curriculum requirements in effect at the time of re-admission, with a minimum
of 30 new credits. If all curriculum requirements are met, and the 30-credit minimum has not been attained,
the remaining credits shall consist of additional directed electives chosen by the department. When these
new degree requirements are met, the student will be issued another diploma and will be entitled to
participate in commencement ceremonies.
