Guidelines for Major Programs
A student must declare a major program with the Registrar’s Office before completion of the first term of the junior year (or before earning 75 hours). Senior transfer students must declare their majors at the time of enrollment.
A student may pursue a double major or multiple concentrations within the same degree type (History and English majors within a Bachelor of Arts program, or Business and Physical Education majors within a Bachelor of Science program, for example). Students are required only to complete the degree requirements for both majors or concentrations. No additional semester hours are required.
If a student desires to pursue two different baccalaureate degrees (Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Social Work, for example), he or she must meet all requirements for both degrees and complete 31 additional hours of Limestone College credit for a minimum of 154 hours. Credit by examination may not count toward the additional semester hours.
A student pursuing an Associate of Arts and Associate of Science simultaneously must complete the degree requirements for both degrees and 16 additional Limestone College hours. Credit by examination may not count toward the additional semester hours.
A student who has completed the requirements for two Bachelor's Degrees may receive both degrees at the same time. However, during the graduation ceremony, only one degree will be recognized. The degree which provides recognition is selected by the student.
A student returning to complete a major after he or she has graduated must complete an additional 16 Limestone credit hours towards an Associate Degree and an additional 31 Limestone credit hours towards a Bachelor's Degree.
