Students who complete requirements for a second bachelor's degree may either declare a dual major or earn two diplomas. Though subtle, the difference is distinct. If a student declares a dual major and completes the degree requirements for both majors, he or she would petition for graduation on a single form and would receive a single diploma with both majors listed. Each academic department must then process the petition.
If a student would rather have a second diploma, the student must apply for graduation using two separate forms. Each form must be accompanied by the graduation petition fee and each must be processed by the appropriate academic department.
