1 APC University of Windsor Academic Policy Committee 3.2: Regulations on Additional Undergraduate Degrees Item for: Information/Discussion On the question of permitting students to obtain a second degree in the same area of study, the following points were made at the last APC meeting: Excerpt from December 14, 2012 APC minutes NOTED: The current regulations on Additional Undergraduate Degrees do not permit students to obtain a second degree in the same discipline or area of study, unless it is to upgrade from a General to an Honours degree, regardless of what institution they attended and where they earned their degree. The opinion was expressed that a student from another country who wants to repeat the same degree here in Canada, should be permitted to do so and that students should be awarded up to 20 transfer credits, for example. Others noted that this may provide an unfair advantage to students who are completing the same degree for a second time and competing for spaces, awards, etc. In order for students to be eligible for a second degree, the area of study must be distinctly different so that there is no significant overlap between the first and second degree. Students who have undergraduate degrees from other recognized domestic or international universities are eligible to apply to graduate programs. It is contradictory to allow a student with the appropriate undergraduate degree to enrol in a graduate degree program and at the same time send the message that they may opt to complete the same undergraduate degree a second time. Students with a degree from an non-recognized institution may complete an undergraduate degree in the same area of study. Students with degrees that are ineligible or who do not meet the criteria for eligibility to graduate school (i.e., grades or courses) are permitted to enroll as non-degree students in order to upgrade their skills, or fill in missing courses or necessary learning gaps for graduate school. Concern was raised regarding the issue that someone who has completed, for example, an honours degree from another university with a B average, then re-takes that same degree and gets an A average may lead to inaccurate reputational comparisons between institutions. One institution may be perceived as being easier, then another comparable institution. The opinion was expressed that it is not appropriate or within the University of Windsor s jurisdiction to say that a degree from another country is less valuable then one from Windsor when that credential comes from a recognized post-secondary institution. Graduates from professional schools from other provinces or countries (i.e., nursing, medical, etc.) follow a different process where they are required to re-take credentials in practicing countries. For example, a foreign-trained physician may need to go through a residency program to practice in North America. There may be Ministry concerns as the government is unlikely to agree to fund a University twice for a student completing the same degree. If the regulation extends only to international students, it was argued that their may not be any harm in permitting them to take the same degree twice as it would be revenue generating, provided that Windsor does not give them too many transfer credits. However, on the other hand it was expressed that allowing students to take the same degree and content twice is double-dipping in terms of content and provides an unfair advantage. Further, these students should be encouraged to complete a Masters degree. AGREED That the following research be conducted to determine whether there is an issue to address, and that this item be placed on the next APC agenda: 1) What are the policies on additional degrees at other universities?; 2) Would universities receive government funding for students completing the same degree twice?; 3) How prevalent is this request from students to complete second degrees in the same area of study?

2 Attached are Second or Subsequent Degree regulations from: Queens Guelph Toronto Waterloo Carleton Laurier Trent UOIT Ottawa York Western Brock Windsor These indicate that it is common practice to have policies in place that do not permit enrolment in a second degree in the same area of study (unless it is to upgrade from a General to an Honours degree). Anecdotal information obtained from the Office of the Registrar indicates that there are only a very small handful of cases per year of students applying for a second degree in the same area of study. In almost all cases, these students are seeking to upgrade and do not realize that they can do so as non-degree students. Once informed, this is the route they take. Page 2 of 15

Academic Viability The links below provide charts of second degree combinations. The first column lists the first degree program of the degree the student has or about to complete. The second column, Allowed Programs and Plans, list second degree combinations that have been assessed as academically viable because of the low degree of overlap between the first degree program and the specific Arts and Science plan. The third column, Disallowed Programs and Plans, lists the second degree combinations that are not academically viable due to significant overlap between the first degree program and the specific Arts and Science Plan.

If they have graduated with their first degree, they must apply for admission to the program for their second degree. A maximum of credits may be transferred from the initial degree program where applicable. The course content of the second degree program must be substantially different from that of the first. If University of Guelph-Humber students apply to graduate with two different degrees at the same convocation, only credits may be transferred from the registered program to the undeclared program. A second degree is judged to be substantially different if: different subject areas as listed in Section XI Course Descriptions; or the schedule of study requirements are substantially different (there can be no more than 25% overlap of courses). University of Toronto "Second Degree" Requirements Students beginning a second degree are normally exempted from first year of the degree requirements by being granted five (5.0) credits, regardless of the number of previous degrees. Students who hold a B.A., B.B.A. or B.Sc. from the University of Toronto will be considered for admission to a second degree Program only of a different type (e.g. students with a B.A. degree may only complete a B.B.A. or B.Sc. degree). Application for admission to a second degree Program is made through the Assistant Registrar, Admissions. Before applying, students are urged to consider if a second degree is actually required for their purposes, for example, a makeup year as a non-degree student may satisfy admission requirements for graduate school. Waterloo -Students may pursue a second Bachelor of Arts (BA) in one of the following ways: an upgrade within the same discipline (e.g., from a Three-Year General History to an Honours History degree or from a Three-Year-General Liberal Studies to a Four-Year General Liberal Studies), or -a second BA in a different discipline. Carleton Simultaneous and Subsequent Degrees -A student who has graduated with a Carleton University degree in a particular program will not be subsequently admitted to the same degree and program. Specifically, students who have graduated with a: B.A., B.A.S., B.Sc. or B.Math. degree may apply subsequently for admission to the same degree if they apply for a different major or, if they graduated with a General or Major degree, they apply for an Honours degree with the same major. -B.Eng. or B.I.T. degree may apply subsequently for admission to the same degree only if they apply for a significantly different program. A program with distinct streams constitutes a single program for this rule. -B.I.D., B.Com., B.I.B., B.C.S., B.Mus., B.Hum., B.S.W., B.J. or B.P.A.P.M. may not apply subsequently for admission to the same degree. -A student who has graduated with a Carleton University degree that includes a minor will not be subsequently admitted to the same minor. -A student who has successfully completed a university degree in a given discipline will not be admitted to a minor in the same discipline in conjunction with subsequent degree studies. Page 5 of 15

6 -A student will only be admitted to one degree and program at a time. The student's record will show only one active degree and program in any given term. Note that certain Certificates and Diplomas do allow concurrent degree studies. -A Carleton University degree student is not allowed simultaneously to be registered in degree studies at another post-secondary institution without the permission of Carleton University. Laurier Simultaneous Degrees: Different Designation Students may enrol in a program of study leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees, given the following guidelines: 1. Each of the honours degrees must be of a different designation; e.g., a BA concurrently with a BSc, a BMus concurrently with a BA, or a BSc concurrently with a BBA. Students may pursue multiple honours degrees from the same faculty sequentially, according to regulations already in place. Students may pursue a degree and a diploma sequentially according to extant regulations. 2. Entry into a program of study simultaneously leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees will be considered only after the student has successfully completed the equivalent of 5.0 credits. 3. For the duration of a program of study simultaneously leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees, the student's program of registration will be the program with the higher BIU value, tuition fee and ancillary fees. Where the values of these items are similar, the student's faculty of registration will be at the discretion of the vice-president: academic. 4. Two types of approval are necessary for entry into a program of study leading to two separate, distinct and simultaneous undergraduate honours degrees. First, both departments in which the student is registering must authorize the program of study before enrolment in such a program can begin. Second, a copy of the program of study, signed by the relevant deans or their delegates, must be forwarded to the registrar. This copy will be placed in the student's academic file. 5. Unless otherwise specified in the program outline placed in the student's academic file, the adjudication and graduation requirements of a program of study simultaneously leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees will be the simple conjunction of all requirements of each of the separate single honours degrees, other than those concerning the total number of credits required for each single honours degree. Normally, a course required by both degrees will count towards both. Normally, a course that is required by one degree program and that is equivalent to a course required by the second program will be counted toward both. Non-departmental electives will also normally count towards both honours degrees. 6. If a student fails to meet the progression requirements of the program of study simultaneously leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees, the student will be removed from it and placed in the standard single-degree honours program with the progression requirements that the student has met. 7. Notwithstanding any of the above, a program of study simultaneously leading to two separate and distinct undergraduate honours degrees will normally require students to complete a minimum of 10.0 credits over and above the minimum credits required for the more demanding of the two constituent honours degrees. Also refer to the BBA/BSc double degree program requirements. Sequential Degrees: BA/BSc An honours BA or BSc may be awarded to a student who has already completed either a BA or a BSc when that student successfully completes an approved minimum number of senior credits (normally 10.0 credits) beyond the minimum requirements of the first degree. Such a program must be structured within a discipline different from that of the major(s) or honour(s) program(s) of the first degree, and must be approved by the department in which the student is majoring and by the dean of the faculty in which the second degree is taken. This regulation also applies to transfer students with degrees from other universities. Refer to the Honours Degrees: Post-General section which follows regarding obtaining an honours degree in the same discipline after completion of a general degree program. Sequential Degrees: Other Designations Students who have already obtained an undergraduate degree [e.g., BBA, BMus (excluding the BA or BSc)] may earn an additional different undergraduate honours degree designation. Such students will be required to complete a minimum number of credits (normally 10.0 credits) beyond the minimum requirements of the first degree as approved by the dean of the faculty in which the second honours degree is taken. Page 6 of 15

7 Honours Degrees: Post-General Students who have graduated with a general degree and wish to proceed to an honours degree in the same discipline may apply to the department to do so. Normally, students must complete all departmental honours requirements and any exception to this must be approved by the relevant dean. A minimum of 5.0 credits while registered in the post-degree honours program is required. With the approval of the department and relevant dean, a student may be admitted into a post-general degree honours program on probation (with the exception of all honours BA and BSc programs). Upon completion of the honours degree requirement, the student's record will be altered to indicate that the general degree has been superseded. Note: Consult the Dean's Office in the Faculty of Arts or Brantford Campus for specific faculty regulations pertaining to the post-general Honours degree. Trent Canadian Universities Students applying for admission to the Faculty of Arts and Science from an accredited university will be considered for admission following at least one semester of study with a 65% average (2.5 GPA on a scale of 4.0). Admission consideration is based on a student s overall academic background including secondary school results. Enrolment is limited and the University will select the most qualified candidates for admission. Applicants are advised they will normally require a higher academic average than the published minimum. Up to 10.0 credits (the equivalent of two years of full-time study) may be transferred toward an undergraduate degree program for courses completed with a minimum of 60%. Applicants holding a first degree may be admitted to undergraduate studies to undertake a second undergraduate degree. Applicants with first degrees from universities may be admitted with a minimum average of 65% (2.5 GPA on a scale of 4.0) and may receive up to 10.0 credits toward a second undergraduate degree. Applicants may not undertake a second degree in the same major or minor as their first degree. Students serving a term of academic suspension or academic debarment at an accredited Canadian university will normally not be eligible for entrance consideration during the period of suspension or debarment. Foreign Post-Secondary Institutions Students applying for admission to Trent University from an accredited university degree, college diploma or associate degree program outside Canada will be considered for admission following the completion of at least one semester of study. Admission consideration is based on the student s overall academic background including secondary school results. Academic averages required will depend on the academic system. Enrolment is limited and the University will select the most qualified candidates for admission. Transfer credit to a maximum of 10.0 credits (the equivalent of two years of full-time study) may be granted depending on course content and marks. Applicants holding a first degree may be admitted to undergraduate studies to undertake a second undergraduate degree. Applicants may not undertake a second degree in the same major or minor as their first degree. Second Degree Students who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree may apply for admission to a second degree program. Students may not complete a second degree in the same subject area(s) as their first degree. Students who have completed an undergraduate degree at an institution other than Trent must apply for admission online. Applications are available at Students who hold a Trent degree and wish to pursue a second degree must apply for re-admission to the seconddegree program (please see below for information on re-admission procedures). The minimum requirements for admission to a second degree include successful completion of the first degree with 65% or better. As enrolment may be limited, applicants are advised they may require a higher academic average in order to be admitted. Note that a maximum of 10.0 credits (the equivalent of two years of full-time study) may be transferred for credit towards a second degree. Page 7 of 15

8 UOIT Second degrees Students holding a UOIT degree may pursue a second degree in another area. In addition to meeting all requirements of that degree, at least one additional year of study is required to qualify. Ottawa Obtaining a second diploma (Approved by the Senate on December 4, 2006) Students holding a first bachelor s degree from the University of Ottawa may obtain a second one by completing at least 30 credits beyond the normal requirements of their first degree. Students holding a first bachelor s degree (honours with specialization, honours with double major, honours with major and minor, three- or four-year general) may obtain a second bachelor s degree by meeting the requirements of this degree. See the table describing the possible combinations. To obtain a certificate, students must complete at least 50 percent of the credits required for the certificate beyond the requirements of the bachelor's degree. Students holding a certificate from the University of Ottawa may obtain a second certificate or a bachelor s degree. To do so, they must meet the requirements of the second diploma and obtain at least 50 percent of the credits required for the second diploma beyond the requirements of the first certificate. At least 50 percent of the additional credits received as part of the second diploma must be taken at the University of Ottawa.

10 York Faculty of Fine Arts Second Degree Candidates Students who hold a degree from an accredited institution may apply to the Faculty of Fine Arts to obtain a second undergraduate degree in a different discipline. Students who hold a BA degree (not an Honours degree) from another accredited institution may apply to the Faculty of Fine Arts to obtain an Honours degree in the same discipline. In all cases, second degree candidates are required to: 1. complete a minimum of 30 additional credits at York University in accordance with the Faculty of Fine Arts residency requirement (courses taken as part of the first degree cannot be used to satisfy this requirement); 2. fulfill all the requirements of the new major and minor programs; general education and elective requirements are waived. The in-faculty requirement should be regarded as the minimum number of additional courses; depending on the program selected and the amount of credit awarded for previous studies, the actual number of courses required for a second degree may well exceed that number. No student will be permitted to pursue a second Honours degree in the same discipline. Faculty of Science and Engineering Degree Reclassification A student who has completed a York University bachelor degree* in the Faculty of Science and Engineering may continue, after graduation, in a Specialized Honours program in the same subject area or in an Honours Double Major or Honours Major/Minor program including the same subject area, provided the grade point average is that required for the Honours program. A student who wishes to pursue a second degree in a different field of study must apply to the Admissions Office for admission as a seconddegree candidate. [*Note for APC: when referring to a bachelor degree this is a general degree.] Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies Second or Subsequent Degrees Students who hold an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, and who are admissible according to Faculty and University policies, may pursue a second (or subsequent) degree program in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies. Eligibility for admission and standing will be assessed according to performance in the first or subsequent degree(s). Students will be assessed as eligible for an Honours degree if they have graduated with Honours standing in their first degree. Students who are eligible for an Honours degree program will be enrolled in Honours, but may elect to graduate with a bachelor s degree. Students admitted to an Honours degree and 90- credit bachelor program will be granted transfer credit in accordance with the University s residency requirement. Under certain circumstances, students admitted to a 90-credit bachelor s degree program may qualify to proceed in an Honours degree; however, the transfer credit granted upon admission will not be amended. All second (and subsequent) degree candidates must meet the residency requirements and must satisfy all upper-level requirements and requirements in the major/minor subject(s). Grade point averages are calculated for students in second (or subsequent) degree programs only on the courses taken for that degree and not on courses taken to satisfy requirements for the first or subsequent degree(s). Students must apply through Admissions for second and subsequent undergraduate degree(s). University residency requirements apply. Page 10 of 15

11 McMaster Second Bachelor s Degree Programs For admission to a second undergraduate degree program you must hold a first undergraduate degree whether it be a three-level, four-level, or five-level degree. The minimum admission requirements and program of study for the second degree depend on the subject areas of the two degrees. Honours Degree following a Three-Level Degree in the Same Subject: For entry, a Cumulative Average of at least 6.0 in the first degree program is required. If admitted, you must take at least 30 units beyond the first degree, including all Honours requirements specified for the program. In some Faculties, this includes a minimum number of units of work in the discipline. B.A. or B.Sc. in Another Subject: For entry, you must meet the admission requirements for the program. If admitted, you must complete at least 30 units beyond the first degree, including all program requirements. In some Faculties, this includes a minimum number of units of work in the discipline. Honours B.A. or B.Sc. in Another Subject: For entry, you must meet the admission requirements for the program and have a Cumulative Average of at least 6.0. If admitted, you must complete at least 60 units beyond the first degree, including all Honours requirements specified for the program. B.M.R.Sc.: Students will be required to complete a minimum of 24 units during Level I of the program. Some of these units may be extra to the degree requirements. B. Eng. and B.A.Sc.: For entry, you must meet the admission requirements for the program. If admitted, you must complete at least 60 units beyond the first degree including all program requirements. Notes 1. All work for the second degree must be completed at McMaster University. 2. A second degree is not available in all subject areas. You will not be admitted to a second degree program where there is substantial overlap in the requirements. See individual Faculty/Program regulations or consult Faculty/Program Offices for exclusions or further information. 3. Minors will not be revoked to permit later registration in a three-level second degree in the same subject. Students may return for a second degree in a subject in which they have obtained a Minor, but only at the Honours level. (See Minors in this section of the Calendar.) 4. Extra courses taken while you are registered in a first degree program, or courses completed as a Continuing Student, may, with the approval of the Faculty, be applied to the second degree program. 5. You must meet the same standards for continuation and graduation as are applied to students registered in a first degree program. 6. Credit from the first two degrees cannot be applied to a third undergraduate degree. To obtain a third undergraduate degree you must take the complete program. i.e. approximately 90 units for a three-level degree and approximately 120 units for a four-level degree. C. University Graduates Applying for a Second Bachelor's Degree Admission is by selection. If you have a first non-honours degree, you may apply to take an Honours second degree in the same subject area or a second degree in another discipline. Please note the following exceptions: B.Com. (Bachelor of Commerce), B.Com. (Honours), B.H.Sc. (Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours)), B.Sc. (Honours) in Integrated Science (isci), Honours B.Sc. Kinesiology, B.F.A. (Honours), and any Honours Multimedia program cannot be done as second degree programs. The requirements are set out in the General Academic Regulations section of this Calendar. If you wish to enter a Second Bachelor's Degree in a subject area from the Faculty of Science, please note that admission to all limited enrolment programs, with the exception of Medical Radiation Sciences I, may not be possible. See Limited Enrolment Programs in the Faculty of Science section of this Calendar for a list of programs. Please contact the Office of the Associate Dean (Studies) of the Faculty of Science for further information. (See Application Procedures section of this Calendar.) Page 11 of 15

12 If you are a McMaster graduate or potential graduate, you may be able to use the McMaster University returning Student application. (See Application Procedures section of this Calendar.) Western Second Degree (Excluding Professional Degrees) 1. Honors Bachelor Degree: Students may upgrade to an Honors Bachelor degree in one of two ways: 1. They may upgrade their Minor, Major or Specialization module(s) in a Bachelor degree (Three or Four- Year) to an Honors Specialization module in an Honors Bachelor degree or they may upgrade their Minor or Major module(s) in a Bachelor degree (Three or Four-Year) to Double Major modules in an Honors Bachelor degree. OR 2. They may pursue a new Honors Specialization module in a different subject or Double Major modules in different subjects than those of the previous degree. All students must complete all outstanding degree requirements in addition to the requirements of the Honors Specialization or Double Major modules chosen. The following regulations apply to previous University of Western Ontario graduates and graduates of other accredited Universities: a) Graduates of the University of Western Ontario: Students who have completed either a Bachelor degree (Three-Year) or a Bachelor degree (Four-Year) at The University of Western Ontario may either upgrade to an Honors Bachelor degree or complete the requirements for a different Honors Bachelor degree at the discretion of the department and Faculty concerned. Students must consult the appropriate department(s) or Faculty for assessment of their transcript. They will be considered for a specific Honors Specialization module or Double Major modules in an Honors Bachelor degree if they have met all admission requirements. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee entrance to an Honors Bachelor degree. The department(s) or Faculty will take into account courses from the first degree and prescribe the courses to be completed. At least 5.0 senior courses must be taken and successfully completed at The University of Western Ontario. Some departments may require more than this number. In addition, the majority of the courses for the Honors Specialization module or for each of the Major modules must be completed through The University of Western Ontario. b) Graduates of other accredited Universities: Students who have completed the equivalent of a Bachelor Degree (Three-Year or Four-Year) at another accredited University must apply for admission to The University of Western Ontario as a Special Student and then, follow the procedure outlined in part "a" above to request a second degree (Honors Bachelor). Students may either upgrade to an Honors Bachelor degree or complete the requirements for a different Honors Bachelor degree at the discretion of the department(s) and Faculty concerned. Graduates of other accredited Universities must also meet The University of Western Ontario residency requirements by taking and successfully completing a minimum of 10.0 senior courses at The University of Western Ontario with honors standards. The majority of the courses for the Honors Specialization module or for each of the Major modules must be completed through The University of Western Ontario. Page 12 of 15

13 Notes: Students applying to upgrade their previous degree conferred under the "old" University of Western Ontario regulations should consult their Faculty regarding permissible upgrades. Students whose previous degree is a professional degree (BA Honors Business Administration, BESc, BFA, BMus, BMusA, BA(HEc), BSc(HEc), BSW(Hons), DDS, LLB, MD, MDiv, MTS)should consult the "Sequential Degree" section for information. Bachelor Degree (Four-Year) Students may upgrade to a Bachelor Degree (Four-Year) in one of two ways: 1. They may upgrade their Major or Minor module(s) in a Bachelor degree (Three-Year) to a Specialization module or Double Major modules. OR 2. They may upgrade to a Bachelor degree (Four-Year) by taking a different Major module, Double Major modules or Specialization module. All students must complete all outstanding degree requirements for the Bachelor degree (Four-Year) in addition to meeting the specific requirements of the module(s). The following regulations apply to previous University of Western Ontario graduates and graduates of other accredited Universities: a) Graduates of The University of Western Ontario: Students who have completed either a Bachelor degree (Three-Year) or a Bachelor degree (Four-Year) at The University of Western Ontario may apply to upgrade to a Bachelor degree (Four-Year) or complete the requirements for a different Bachelor Degree at the discretion of the department(s) and Faculty concerned. Students must consult the appropriate department(s) or Faculty for assessment of their transcript. At least 5.0 senior courses must be taken and successully completed at The University of Western Ontario. The majority of the courses for the new modules must be completed through the course offerings of The University of Western Ontario. b) Graduates of other accredited Universities: Students who have completed the equivalent of a Bachelor degree (Three-Year) at another accredited University must apply for admission to The University of Western Ontario as a Special Student and then, follow the procedure outlined in part "a" above to request a second Bachelor degree (Four-Year). These students must also meet The University of Western Ontario residency requirements by taking and successfully completing a minimum of 10.0 courses at The University of Western Ontario including all of the required courses for the module(s) chosen. Notes: Students applying to upgrade their previous degree conferred under the "old" University of Western Ontario regulations should consult their Faculty regarding permissible upgrades. Students whose previous degree is a professional degree (BA Honors Business Administration, BESc, BFA, BMus, BMusA, BA(HEc), BSc(HEc), BSW(Hons), DDS, LLB, MD, MDiv, MTS) should consult the Sequential Degree section for information. Brock: Second Degree Admission Criteria An individual who wishes to pursue a second undergraduate degree must: have successfully completed the first degree with a minimum 65 percent overall average, although many programs require higher averages where honours standing is a requirement Page 13 of 15

14 fulfill all the specific requirements of each degree program including prerequisites, co-requisites and honours standing requirements (where appropriate). An applicant who holds a bachelor's degree may be allowed to pursue undergraduate studies leading to a second bachelor's degree of the same or another designation under the following conditions: the principal area of study or academic emphasis must be distinct from that of the first degree (for example, an applicant with a Bachelor of Arts in History may not apply for a second Bachelor of Arts in History, they may however apply for a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature); the student must complete, with satisfactory standing, at least 50 percent more credits beyond the first degree; in order to obtain the second degree the student must meet all program requirements for the degree** any departure from the above must be approved by the Dean of the appropriate Faculty. **While every effort is made to grant maximum transfer credit, the specific requirements for the second degree may not allow all transfer credit to fit within the degree. Windsor ADDITIONAL UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES An individual who wishes to pursue a second undergraduate degree must take the following steps: 1. (a) If one degree has already been conferred, a student must make application for admission and be admitted to the second degree program. This application is made for approval to pursue the second degree and will inform the student of the total number of courses required for it. This may be done by completing an Application for Returning Students form on SIS or by completing the form in the Office of the Registrar (Students wishing to rescind their first degree to lessen the number of courses required for the second degree, may do so at this time); OR (b) If both degrees are being pursued at the same time, a student must complete a "Declaration of Second Degree" form in the Office of the Registrar to determine eligibility for the intended second degree and to be informed of the total number of courses required for it. This form should be completed as soon as the student has the intent to pursue more than one degree; AND 2. Fulfill all the specific requirements of each degree program including residency requirements as described see "Residency Requirements" as well as any program specific requirements (where appropriate); AND 3. Take the appropriate number of courses over and above the first degree by meeting the following additional degree requirements: (a) Students with one general degree (B.A., B.Sc., B.C.S., B.Math., B.M.A.): may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a second general degree in a different area of study*. may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a professional degree.** may count a maximum of thirty courses toward an Honours degree in the same or different major. (b) Students with one Honours degree in a single major (B.A., B.A.S., B.Sc., B.C.S., B.Math., B.F.A., B.O.R., B.F.S., B.E.S.) may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a general degree in a different area of study*. may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a professional degree.** may count a maximum of thirty courses toward a second Honours degree in a different area of study* may not receive another Honours degree combining the area of study in their first Honours degree with another. (c) Students with a previous degree in Music will be permitted to pursue a second degree in Music Therapy on the condition that they complete a minimum of 15 additional courses at least 10 of which must be taken at the University of Windsor at the 200-level or above. (d)students with one Honours degree with a double major (B.A., B.Sc., B.Math) may not receive a general degree with a major in either area of study from their first Honours degree. Page 14 of 15

15 may count a maximum of thirty courses toward a second Honours degree in one of the same majors as the first degree provided that a minimum of eight courses in that major field are taken over and above the major courses used in the first degree. (e)students with one Professional degree (B.A.Sc., B. Comm., B.H.K., B.S.W., B.Sc.N., LL.B.) may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a general degree.** may count a maximum of twenty courses toward a second professional degree in a different area of study.* may count a maximum of thirty courses toward an Honours degree. (f)students with one Four Year Major degree (B.A., B.Sc.): may not receive an Honours degree in the same area of study. Students who improve their major average to qualify for the Honours designation may apply for the Honours degree provided they rescind their Major degree. (g)students who have completed a degree in Education through the consecutive pre-service program, or who have completed Education courses in a Concurrent program, may not count any of the Education courses toward another degree. (h)students applying for admission to Bachelor of Commerce (Honours Business Administration) program after completing the BBS degree will be evaluated under the admission requirements of the B.Comm at the time of the student's application, and it is possible that some BBS courses may not be given credit towards the B.Comm degree. Students may retain only one of these degrees. (i)students who have already been granted a second undergraduate degree as listed above, may only count a maximum of ten courses toward a third degree. These courses may not include the ones already counted for the second degree. (j)students may not use any courses used toward a minor in a first degree toward the major of a second degree unless the minor is rescinded from the first degree. Please see "Minor" for additional regulations concerning minors. (k)students with a graduate degree in one area of study may not receive a general or honours degree (single or combined) in the same area of study as the graduate degree. * The major of the second degree must be distinct from the major in the first degree. Therefore, in all cases, a student with an Honours degree cannot receive a general degree in the same major (eg if a student has already received an Honours degree in English, that student cannot request admission nor receive a general degree in English). However there are instances where the majors are not the same but the requirements for the major include courses from the same subject area. To determine if two degrees can be awarded in these cases, the general rule is: if the first degree requires six or more courses in a subject area, then a general degree in a major that requires courses from that same subject area will not be allowed OR if the first degree requires eleven or more courses in a subject area, then an Honours degree in a major that requires courses from that same subject area will not be allowed. ** Exceptions to this regulation are as follows: a student with any degree majoring in Economics may not receive an Honours B.Comm. in Business Administration and Economics and a student with any degree in Computer Science (including the B.Sc. degrees offered in Computer Science) may not receive an Honours B.Comm in Business Administration and Computer Science. These students may only be considered for the Bachelor of Commerce for University Graduates program which results in a B.Comm. Degree in Business Administration. Likewise, a student with an Honours degree in Business Administration and Economics or Business Administration and Computer Science may not receive a general degree in Economics or Computer Science respectively.
