Second Baccalaureate Degree Students

An applicant who holds a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and who wishes to take undergraduate work toward a second baccalaureate degree in a different field should follow the instructions below:

  1. Complete the application form and return it to the Undergraduate Admissions Office with the application fee. Priority consideration applications (including all required credentials) are due by March 1 for the fall semester or October 1 for the spring semester. The final application deadlines are August 1 (space permitting) for the fall semester or December 1 (space permitting) for the spring semester.
  2. Submit official transcripts from each postsecondary institution previously attended (including summer school and extension) by the above deadlines.
  3. An application fee, currently $45, not refundable and not applicable toward tuition and other costs.
  4. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions reserves the right to request additional information regarding an applicant's activities and responses to questions required by the UNC system. If additional information cannot be collected prior to the above deadlines, the application may be processed for the next term. For this reason, we encourage applicants to submit all required materials well in advance of the posted deadline.

An applicant holding a baccalaureate degree and taking work for credit for other purposes must apply through the Graduate School.

Exception I: second-degree applicants to Preprofessional Programs, including the Pre-Medical Program, should apply through the Undergraduate Admissions Office.

Exception II: All students seeking Standard Professional I Licensure in the same major as their degree should contact the UNCG Teachers Academy at 336/334-3412.
