A student who has already earned a bachelor’s degree and would like to pursue another one is considered a “second-degree” transfer student.

How to apply for a Second Bachelor's degree:

  • Bachelor's degree was not earned at UM-Dearborn

    If you earned your bachelor’s degree at a school other than UM-Dearborn, submit an undergraduate application and follow the steps outlined for transfer students. You will be required to send transcripts from all institutions previously attended. 

  • Bachelor's degree was earned at UM-Dearborn

    If you earned your degree at UM-Dearborn, submit an undergraduate application. You will not need to request a UM-Dearborn transcript (or transcripts from schools attended prior to your initial degree at UM-Dearborn); we will access your UM-Dearborn academic record.

    • If UM-Dearborn was your last educational experience, your final cumulative GPA will be used to determine admissibility. Transfer GPA requirements apply.
    • If you attended any college/university after graduating from UM-Dearborn, a transcript from that institution is required and may be used to determine admissibility.

If you have a bachelor's degree and would like to take additional classes without pursuing a second degree, please explore our non-degree options

If you have a bachelor's degree and seek post-degree teacher certification, please visit the College of Education, Health, and Human Services for more information.
