Second Degree and Visiting Applicants

Second degree? Nondegree? Summer class? You’re in the right place.

If you have completed a bachelor’s degree and are thinking of enrolling at IU Bloomington to complete a second undergraduate degree, you must consult your school of interest before applying.

Some IU Bloomington schools do not accept second degree candidates; others have varying policies related to obtaining a second bachelor’s degree; and some may instead recommend a graduate-level degree (which can open additional opportunities) in your field of interest.

If you are admitted as a second bachelor’s degree candidate, your next step will be to contact your major department and schedule an academic advising appointment to plan for course registration.
