To make sure that your pursuit of a second undergraduate degree is as efficient as possible, Longwood requires you to apply for graduation at the same time you apply for admission.

Please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the Transfer Application and satisfy the $50 application fee.
  2. Request and send official transcripts directly to Longwood Admissions from each college or university you have attended.
  3. If admitted, you will receive the Second Bachelor's Degree Application form with instructions to contact the Department Chair.
  4. Meet with Department Chair and complete the Second Bachelor's Degree Application form.
  5. Return the completed and signed form to the Admissions Office.

Once the Registrar's Office has received your Application for Degree, they will notify the Admissions Office to proceed with your Application for Admissions. This unique process is designed to make sure that you are fully aware of the remaining requirements for your second undergraduate degree.

Your first degree will automatically satisfy the General Education Goals of Longwood. The chair of your department will determine all other equivalencies. At a minimum, you will need to earn 30 hours at the 300-400 level at Longwood. You must meet all prerequisites and requirements for your major that have not otherwise been met through your first degree. Again, the minimum credits will be 30; however, there have been cases of students needing as many as 90 credits. We have no way of predicting your remaining requirements until you complete the above-mentioned steps.
