Second Degree Students

A student who possesses a bachelor's degree from another accredited institution and wishes to enroll at Loras to pursue an additional degree may seek admission as a Second Degree Student. Loras College graduates are only eligible to pursue a second bachelor's degree in a discipline other than the original degree (i.e., if a Loras graduate holds a B.A., they may not pursue another B.A. from Loras, only a B.S.).

A holder of a B.A. or B.S. degree from another accredited institution is considered to have satisfied all the Loras general education requirements.

Second Degree students must submit the following application materials to the Registrar’s Office:
  1. A completed Loras College Second Degree Application
  2. An official transcript from each institution attended
  3. $25.00 application fee

Submit application materials to the Registrar’s Office

  2. By mail: Registrar’s Office, Mail #1, Loras College, 1450 Alta Vista Street, Dubuque, IA  52001

Second Degree requirements:
  1. Be admitted to Loras College
  2. Earn at least 30 credit hours in residence at Loras College
