Students who hold a three- or four-year bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a recognized/accredited institution may pursue a program leading to a second or subsequent bachelor's degree (commonly referred to as an After-Degree), provided they qualify for admission and meets all University and Faculty regulations. Consultation with academic advisors regarding admission and graduation requirements is necessary. The following regulations apply:
- Applicants will not be considered for admission to a second or subsequent degree program in any major field, or equivalent, in which they already possess a degree or in a field that is deemed, by the University of Calgary, to be similar or equivalent to a degree already attained (e.g. applicants with a prior Bachelor of Business Administration will not be admitted to a Bachelor of Commerce).
- Applicants holding a minor or equivalent will only be admitted to a second degree in the same area of the minor at the discretion of the University.
- Normally, a minimum of 60 units must be taken from the University of Calgary. These 60 units are in addition to any courses used to satisfy requirements for the previous credential(s).
- Prerequisites may be waived or advanced standing granted at the discretion of the admitting Faculty.
- A student admitted to a second or subsequent degree program must satisfy all corresponding degree and major field requirements current at the time of admission into the program.
- Combined degrees are not available for second or subsequent baccalaureate degrees.
