Additional Hiram College Bachelor's Degree

Hiram graduates who have already received either the B.A. or the B.S.N. degree may wish to obtain the other bachelor degree. Students interested in pursuing this must adhere to the following graduation requirements:

  • Students who have completed a Hiram College bachelor’s degree and thus all general education requirements within the last five years may be exempt from completing general education requirements for their second Hiram bachelor’s degree. All requirements for the major of the second bachelor’s degree must be completed as well as maintaining a major and cumulative grade point average of 2.00. Major requirements are set by each academic program. Therefore, students should consult with an advisor in the major on requirements for the major.
  • Students returning to Hiram for their second bachelor’s degree and who have been away from the College for five or more years may be required to follow the College’s Core Curriculum general education requirements. Questions regarding status of general education requirements should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.

Students pursuing both a Hiram B.A. and B.S.N. simultaneously must complete all requirements for each major, earn a 2.00 cumulative grade point average as well as a 2.00 grade point average in each major, and fulfill all general education requirements.  This will usually require a minimum of 150 credit hours to complete both majors and all degree requirements.

Additional Hiram College Major or Minor After Hiram College Graduation

Hiram graduates who wish to return to Hiram to complete an additional major or minor may do so by contacting the Center for Adult Studies. In most cases, students returning to complete an additional major/minor will not be eligible for financial aid. Questions regarding financial aid should be directed to the Financial Aid Office.
