How to get started for…

Second bachelor’s degree

If you have already earned a degree at Metropolitan State or another institution, you will apply as a second degree seeking student.

  • You must complete 30 residency semester credits and any other requirement determined by the college granting the degree.
  • You must supply official transcripts for all post-secondary institutions where you were previously enrolled (even if no credit or clock hours were earned) and official transcripts for all post-secondary credits (including military, CLEP, and advanced placement).
  • If you received your first degree from another Minnesota State institution, Metropolitan State will retrieve your transcripts for you via e-Transcript. However, if there are holds on your record from the institution, you must first resolve those holds before your transcripts can be retrieved.
