Multiple Bachelor’s Degrees

Students may earn multiple bachelor’s degrees simultaneously only if the degrees have different titles, e.g., Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, provided all specified requirements are satisfied. A student may not earn multiple Bachelor of Science degrees or multiple Bachelor of Arts simultaneously.

Students who have received a previous bachelor’s degree either from the University of Nevada, Reno or another accredited university or college may earn a subsequent degree of the same or a different title. However, students who have received a previous bachelor’s degree are not eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid while completing the requirements for a subsequent degree with the same title.

Students must declare their intention to pursue a second undergraduate degree in the Office of Admissions and Records. Previous degree holders must submit an application for admission to the subsequent program. With the permission of the appropriate department, a student who has previously earned a minor may return to earn a major/degree in the same discipline.  All candidates for a second degree must satisfy specific course requirements prescribed by the appropriate school or college for each degree.

A single graduation application is required for multiple degrees earned simultaneously. Additional graduation applications are required for each degree earned subsequently.
