Graduate Policies and Procedures Manual

6.100 Second Master's Degree


Students who have been awarded a master's degree from a regionally accredited institution may earn another master's degree by taking a minimum of twenty-two semester hour of graduate credit. These hours must be taken at Wright State University, and no transfer credit can be applied toward this requirement.


Departments or programs may require additional work depending upon the length of a degree program or prerequisites for individual students.


Admission policies and procedures for a second master's degree are the same as those for the first degree.
