Students who feel that they will gain significant educational or career advantage
by earning more than one associate degree from DCC may pursue study toward another
degree with the written approval of the registrar. In order to qualify for the second
degree, a student must complete at least 15 applicable credits beyond those used to
satisfy requirements for the first degree. Nine of the 15 credits must be specifically
required in the second curriculum.
Students who wish to qualify for the degrees simultaneously should request approval
as soon as they are aware of their plans to earn two degrees. Those who already have
received one degree should seek approval prior to matriculating in the second degree
program. Interested students should contact their Academic Coach in the ACT Center.
