Second-Degree Seeking Students

Let's get Started

Students who have earned a baccalaureate degree, either at Boise State or elsewhere can earn a second degree by completing specified major requirements. Second-degree seeking students must complete at least 30 upper-division credits at Boise State for each additional degree.

Have you considered one of our Graduate Programs? The College of Business and Economics has several opportunities for students looking to continue their education.

Second-Degree Process

  • Complete the second-degree admission process to Boise State
    – Note: Students that have completed their first baccalaureate degree through Boise State will NOT need to submit a transcript
  • Complete the COBE second-degree checklist request (please make sure you have received your Boise State student ID first)
  • A COBE Advisor will review your submission and evaluate your credits from your previous baccalaureate degree
  • COBE Advising will contact you after all of your materials have been evaluated to go over your second-degree requirements
  • Make sure to review deadline, policies, and guidelines listed on the Registrar’s Office website
  • Review the admissions standards for the College of Business and Economics

You should allow a minimum of 8 weeks for processing your checklist request. The date of your submission may impact course availability in the semester you intend to start.
