Holders of University Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates (including previous credentials from the Mount)

A student who wishes to obtain a second undergraduate degree must fulfill the same conditions as a transfer student. See section Admission Requirements for Transfer Applicants. If applicable, the student must also complete a major different from that of the first degree and a minor according to the regulations of the particular degree program.

A student who holds a Mount Saint Vincent University degree must complete a minimum of 50 percent of the requirements for a certificate or diploma above and beyond the credits counted toward degree requirements in order to receive the second credential. A student may progress from certificate to diploma to degree by fulfilling the stated requirements of the next higher credential. Previously earned credits will be applied as appropriate when such a sequence is followed.

In all cases, the student must apply for and receive the appropriate credential as soon as credential requirements are completed. University credentials are sequential. Therefore, a credential will not be awarded retroactively after another higher credential within the same program has been awarded.
