Post-Baccalaureate Requirements


A student who wishes to earn a second baccalaureate degree subsequent to their first degree (known as a Post-Baccalaureate or Post-Bacc) must complete the following requirements:

• Fulfill all major requirements for the second degree which include a minimum of 36 additional undergraduate hours
subsequent to the earning of the first degree, if the first degree was from WOU. If the first degree was from an accredited institution other than WOU, an additional 45 hours subsequent to the earning of the first degree must be earned.

• At least 75 percent of the additional hours must be earned at WOU.

• All course work earned toward the second degree must be taken with an A–F grade option unless the course is designated as P/NC only.

Students earning a second bachelor’s degree are not eligible to graduate with honors in that degree.
