Dual / Second Degrees

EARNING DUAL DEGREES

Students may elect to earn two associate’s degrees at RPCC at the same time provided that the degrees do not duplicate each other. To earn dual degrees, students must receive approval from the College. Additionally, students must meet all degree requirements for both degrees, and they must earn 15 hours beyond those required for the degree with the fewest hours.

Some degree programs offer multiple concentrations. For these programs, the degree may be earned only once with one concentration. For more information, contact the Office of Student Services (225-743-8500).

 

COMPLETING A SECOND DEGREE

Students who have already earned one associate’s degree from RPCC may choose to earn an additional degree when the second degree being earned is not largely a duplication of the first. To earn a second degree, students must receive approval from the College. Additionally, students must complete all requirements for the second degree. This includes earning a minimum of 15 credit hours beyond those required for the first degree.

Some degree programs offer multiple concentrations. For these programs, the degree may be earned only once with one concentration. For more information, contact the Office of Student Services (225-743-8500).
