Second Undergraduate Degree Program

Lehman College accepts candidates for a second undergraduate degree when specific professional purposes dictate the need and when the second degree represents preparation discrete from the preparation identified by the first bachelor's degree. Candidates must complete a minimum of thirty credits in residence (see the definition of residence credits under the heading of "Credit Requirements" later in this chapter) and must fulfill all the requirements for the new major and/or interdisciplinary program. Students must take the English Transfer Placement Exam and complete the College writing requirement as determined by that examination.

The liberal arts requirements from the first degree may satisfy the requirements for the second degree. In general, candidates will have fulfilled the College requirements with the first degree, but specific requirements may be recommended. Candidates for a second bachelor's degree must have their curricula approved by the Office of Academic Standards and Evaluation (Shuster Hall, Room 280).
