Earning a Second Undergraduate Degree



A student may only earn two different baccalaureate degrees through concurrent or consecutive enrollment at James Madison University.  The following requirements must be met to earn a second degree:

- Earn a minimum of 150 credit hours, including a minimum of 60 hours at JMU.
- Meet all degree and university graduation requirements for both degree programs.
- Meet all prerequisite and course requirements in two different major fields.

Students who hold a baccalaureate degree from another institution may not earn a second baccalaureate degree at James Madison University.

JMU alumni who wish to obtain a second major need to contact JMU’s Office of Outreach and Engagement.
