Second Bachelor's Degree Graduation Requirements

A student completing a second bachelor’s degree must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours at Northeastern Illinois University.  Students may not be enrolled in two programs simultaneously.

Coursework counted toward a previous undergraduate or graduate degree may not be used to fulfill the 30-credit hour requirement for the second bachelor’s degree. Speak with your major department regarding courses which satisfy the requirement.

Applicants for a second bachelor’s degree who were awarded a degree from an accredited college or university in the United States have met the following Northeastern graduation requirements: the University Core Curriculum including all General Education-Distributive Learning and Engaged Learning Experiences requirements, ENGL-101, the Writing Intensive requirement, the Math/Quantitative Reasoning requirement, and the 40 hours at the upper-division (300-level) requirement.

Second bachelor’s degree candidates are required to fulfill the Improving Human Relations requirement.
