I. Purpose

This policy describes the guidelines for dual degrees.

II. Accountability

The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and appropriate Program Directors insure compliance with this policy. The SHP office of Enrollment Management implements the policy.

III. Policy

A student cannot receive two SHP degrees simultaneously using the same course work to fulfill the course requirements for both. If a student wishes to obtain a second degree, he/she may apply to the second program and pay the application fee. If accepted, and with the approval of both Program Directors, the student may transfer credits to the second program consistent with the School transfer credit policy (2.5). The remaining credits necessary to fulfill the degree requirements of the second program will be taken using appropriate elective courses.

Students may seek to be enrolled in two programs in two different Schools within the University. The student should advise the Program Directors if deciding to pursue both degrees.
