Second Degrees

  1. Students who begin undergraduate studies at TTU after having completed the baccalaureate degree at another regionally accredited U.S. university and who, in addition, desires a baccalaureate degree from TTU will be regarded as having completed their general education requirement at TTU, with two exceptions:
    1. These students must complete two semesters of American History (equivalent to TTU's HIST 2010-2020) at the college level, in accordance with state law, unless the second degree is to be in Engineering and the student has completed an academic-year course in American History in secondary school.
    2. These students must take any general education courses that are required for progression in their major programs.
