Post-Baccalaureate Students

Students who have earned a baccalaureate or higher degree from an approved institution may qualify for admission to earn additional undergraduate credit beyond their degree (see same title in College of Education).

Students interested in post-baccalaureate study may take course work for self-enrichment, may earn a second degree, a letter of completion or an academic certificate. Students pursuing an additional degree must earn a minimum of 30 credits at SRU beyond their first baccalaureate degree and meet all department requirements for the degree.

Post-baccalaureate students may not enroll at SRU to add a second major, minor, or other academic credentials to their undergraduate degree without meeting all requirements for a second degree.

Post-baccalaureate students interested in learning more about curriculum and degree requirements should contact the related academic department at the university. Questions regarding the actual application process should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Admission Guidelines for Post-Baccalaureate Students Seeking a Second Degree or Teacher Certification

A baccalaureate degree awarded from a regionally accredited institution of higher education is required. Certain programs, such as teacher certification and nursing programs, may require applicants to meet additional or more stringent admission criteria, including minimum Grade Point Average requirements. Interested applicants should contact those college or department offices for admission guideline information prior to applying for admission. Post-Baccalaureate students seeking to earn a second degree and/or teacher certification may be eligible for financial aid, and should contact the Financial Aid Office for further information.
