Students with an earned baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university will have the core curriculum requirements waived if pursuing a second baccalaureate degree.

If a student earns an associate degree and continues Mount course work to pursue one or more additional undergraduate degrees (associate or baccalaureate), the student’s acceptance status and core curriculum requirements remain unchanged. If a student changes his or her major, minor, concentration or certificate program, although the core curriculum requirements remain unchanged, the catalog in effect at the time of the change determines the requirements for the new major, minor, concentration or certificate. If a student does not continue enrollment in courses at the Mount for a period of two years, the student must reapply for admission.

Students wishing to earn an additional degree after an absence of two years or more must reapply for admission, fulfill all major requirements, plus all requirements for the degree as established by the catalog in effect when they return to pursue the additional degree. Students who reapply for admission and begin classes during the summer sessions will be bound by the University catalog in effect for the following fall semester/term.

For a second and different baccalaureate degree, students must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in residency beyond the first degree, at least 15 of these hours must be in upper-level courses. For a second and different associate degree, students must complete a minimum of 21 credit hours in residency beyond the first degree, at least 9 of these additional hours must be in upper-level courses, plus the current core curriculum requirements.

Students wishing to earn a second major (not a second degree) to add to their existing Mount degree, must complete the major requirements stated by the catalog in effect at the time they resume course work for the second major.
