2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog


Double Degrees

A TCU student who wishes to pursue multiple bachelor's degrees concurrently must:

  • Declare intent and file all degree plans prior to completing the last 15 hours of either degree.
  • Fulfill all specific major, college/school and University degree requirements in force at the time of initial enrollment (subject to the six-year limitation).
  • Successfully complete 30 hours on each bachelor's degree that did not apply toward any of the other bachelor's degrees. (A second bachelor's degree will not be awarded until the student has completed at least 30 hours in addition to those counted toward the bachelor's degree that requires the higher number of credit hours.)
  • No course may be applied to more than one set of major or minor requirements without the express approval of the appropriate dean.

To return to TCU to earn an additional bachelor's degree, an applicant holding a bachelor's degree from TCU must apply to pursue a specific degree and, if admitted, must successfully complete a minimum of 30 semester hours at TCU that did not apply to the first degree, plus fulfill all specific major, college/school and University degree requirements in force at the time of enrollment for the additional degree.

A second bachelor's degree will not be awarded until the student has completed at least 30 hours in addition to those counted toward the bachelor's degree that requires the higher number of credit hours.

An applicant holding a bachelor's degree from another accredited institution must:

  • Be accepted to pursue a specific degree.
  • Successfully complete a minimum of 58 semester hours in residence at TCU.
  • Fulfill all specific major, college/school and University degree requirements in force at the time of enrollment at TCU for the additional degree.

Courses applied toward a previously earned bachelor's degree will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine their applicability to University degree requirements.
