Dual Degree Policy

A dual degree, for the purposes of this policy, refers to the pursuit of a second associate degree or a second bachelor’s degree at the New England Institute of Technology. Students may pursue a second associate degree or a second bachelor’s degree by completing a minimum of 34 additional technical credits in the second degree program. The additional technical credits in the second degree program shall be comprised of the technical degree requirements in the second program as well as any technical electives as approved by the Department Chair. Technical electives will be approved with consideration of relevancy to the chosen field of study. Liberal arts courses may only be included as part of the additional technical credits if the second degree program requires specific core electives not already completed in the first degree program. All requests for a dual degree must be approved by the Office of Teaching and Learning.

 

NEIT reserves the right to refuse admission to any student for any reason other than race, color, religious belief, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or disability.
