Please Note: Second BA or BS applications are currently considered for admission to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors only. For a list of specific STEM majors and application filing status (open or closed), see Admissions Calendar.
A second bachelor's degree applicant is admitted to CSUN as a graduate student and must meet all of the following requirements:
- The applicant has an acceptable earned baccalaureate degree and a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in all units attempted as an undergraduate, independent of when the degree was granted;
- or, the applicant has an acceptable earned baccalaureate degree and a minimum grade point average of 2.5 in the last 60 semester/90 quarter units attempted from all post-secondary institutions attended. The entire semester or quarter in which the 60/90 units began will be used in the calculation;
- or, the applicant holds an acceptable post-baccalaureate degree earned at a regionally accredited institution.
Second BA or BS degree: A post baccalaureate student who holds a recognized bachelor's degree from an accredited institution may pursue a program leading to a second bachelor's degree in approved majors. The major may not be the same as the previously awarded degree. All students are urged to consult with a department advisor to determine whether a second bachelor's degree or a graduate program better meets their needs.
