Second Associate's Degree
It is not possible to earn two degrees concurrently at the same level (e.g., two associate's degrees) using the same credit. However, students may wish to pursue a second AA degree after the award of the first AA degree.
A student who holds an associate's degree from UMUC or another regionally accredited college or university can earn a second associate's degree by meeting the following requirements:
- Request an Official Evaluation for the second degree before enrolling in applicable coursework, but after completing the requirements for the first AA degree. (see Official Evaluation).
- Complete at least 15 credits of new coursework with UMUC (including at least 9 credits in the core or core-related area, depending on the degree). The new 15 credits must be uniquely applicable to the second UMUC AA degree
If the second degree is in the same field as the first, the second degree must be in a more specialized subdiscipline of the field (e.g., it is permissible to earn a second AA in BMGT after earning the first AA in MGST, but not the reverse).
Earning an Associate's Degree (AA) after Earning a Bachelors Degree
It is possible to earn an associate's degree concurrently with a bachelor's degree if all degree requirements have been met for both degrees. However, once the bachelor's degree is conferred, the student will be held to second degree rules for associate's degrees, which stipulate that 15 new credits must be earned.
