Second Bachelor's Degree Requirements

Two Bachelor's Degrees Completed Concurrently

  1. Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 additional credit hours earned at Saint Xavier University.
  2. Completion of all the requirements for the second degree major.

A second bachelor's degree will be conferred upon completion of a program of study approved by both the chair of the student's major department and the school dean. A student who pursues a second program at Saint Xavier University with a major in the same degree field (e.g., B.A. or B.S.) does not receive a second degree but rather adds another major to the original degree.

Previous Bachelor's Degree

Students who enter Saint Xavier University with a previous bachelor's degree and have completed the general education coursework listed in the Illinois Articulation Initiative are permitted to fall under the articulation agreement. Therefore, if these students have fulfilled the general education requirements of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), they would be required to take ACSU 101: Transfer Student Orientation, Philosophy 150: The Examined Life and one religious studies course at Saint Xavier University to fulfill general education requirements.

Students who have earned a previous bachelor's degree, but have not completed the IAI general education core, are required to fulfill the remaining general education courses at Saint Xavier University.
