A student wishing to leave a combined degree program prior to completion must submit the Withdrawal from a Combined Degree Program form. Once processed, the following billing action will occur:
- If the student is pursuing the undergraduate portion of the program, the student will continue with undergraduate coursework and will be billed accordingly at the undergraduate tuition rate.
- If the student is pursuing the graduate portion of the combined degree program when the student chooses to withdraw from the combined degree program, they will continue to be charged at the graduate rate until formally re-matriculated into the undergraduate career the following semester.
Combined Degree(s) that include a Double Degree:
In the case of a combined degree(s) that includes an undergraduate double-degree, rules of double degrees apply. A maximum of 30 credits of graduate coursework may be applied to one associated undergraduate degree. A student must complete at least 120 undergraduate credits. No graduate credits may be applied toward the 120 undergraduate credit minimum. No credit may be applied to more than two degrees.
A subsequent degree is earned when a student pursues an undergraduate degree after they have earned a bachelor degree from UB, an accredited U.S. institution, or a recognized foreign institution. Once a UB undergraduate degree is awarded a student may not add a minor or concentration to that degree.
In order to receive a subsequent undergraduate degree from UB, the following requirements must be met:
- The student must be accepted to UB as a matriculated student and be accepted into the new major
- The student must meet all requirements for the new major
- The coursework in the second degree program must be a minimum of 30 credit hours to fulfill the minimum required to satisfy UB’s residency requirement
- The new major for the subsequent degree must be in a significantly different field of study than any already conferred degrees. Therefore 300- and 400-level coursework completed for the major requirements of the first bachelor’s degree will not count toward completing the major requirements of the subsequent degree.
- In the rare circumstance when a single course taken for the first degree program is a required course in the subsequent degree program, a course substitution in the subsequent degree may be approved by petition from the undergraduate program director of the subsequent degree program
- A student pursuing the second bachelor’s degree does not need to complete the UB Curriculum (general education) requirements but must still possess the competencies of a student who completes the requirements for the regular degree program
