Second Baccalaureate Degree

A student who holds a credential equivalent to the baccalaureate degree in the United States from an accredited institution other than Rutgers University may pursue a second bachelor's degree at Rutgers College. Second degree candidates must complete a minimum of 45 credits beyond those required for the initial degree, including all requirements for the new major and three liberal arts courses in a subject unrelated to the major. A minimum of 30 credits must be completed as a Rutgers College student.

Two baccalaureate degrees may not be earned concurrently except through approved dual-degree programs, such as that between Rutgers College and the School of Engineering. Students who graduate from Rutgers College after completing more than one major do not earn additional degrees.
