Students with a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university may apply to FGCU for admission to work toward a second bachelor’s degree. The first bachelor’s degree satisfies the general education and College-Level Skills (previously known as Gordon Rule requirements) and provides exemption from the foreign language requirement.

Students with a bachelor’s degree from FGCU must reapply for admission to work toward a second bachelor’s degree.

  • If a student graduates with one degree and wishes to obtain a second major or degree, he/she must be readmitted to the institution.
  • A minimum of 30 credit hours must be completed toward the second degree at FGCU after re-admission.
  • After completion of the second degree on a subsequent date, he/she will receive a second diploma.
  • Service Learning (40 hours) is required for all Second Baccalaureate students who did not receive their initial degree from FGCU.
