To qualify for a double degree, a student must complete all requirements for both degrees as stated in the catalog. A minimum of 30 hours of upper-division courses, in addition to the requirements for the degree with the greater hour requirements, must also be completed. For a standard degree at UT Tyler requiring 42 upper-division hours and 120 hours total, this means a student must complete a minimum of 72 upper-division hours and 150 total hours to earn a double degree. Students seeking a double degree should consult with advisors for each degree, as total hour requirements will vary dependent upon the requirements for the degrees being pursued.
Students earning a double degree will receive a diploma for each degree. The transcript will show separate degree postings for each degree earned.
