You may be considered for admission to a program for a second degree if your educational objective changed substantially after you received your bachelor’s degree. All second baccalaureate admissions are subject to the approval of the dean or director of the UCI school or program in which the second degree will be earned.
Admission as a candidate for a second bachelor’s degree requires that the applicant:
- is fully eligible for admission to the university
- has strong promise of academic success in the new major

Note: UCI is open to all admission applications during the traditional UC application period, November 1-November 30.
Students who have not attended UCI as undergraduates during a regular academic quarter must complete a UC Application for Undergraduate Admission.
Students who have received an undergraduate degree from UCI and are interested in pursuing an additional undergraduate degree must apply for readmission as a second baccalaureate.
Students who have completed a degree at another institution, but have attended UCI as an undergraduate during a regular academic quarter may apply as a second baccalaureate.
(The deadline for second baccalaureate candidates to submit all of their official transcripts is the end of the second week of February.)
