Do you already have a bachelor's degree and are looking to earn a second bachelor's? You'll enroll as a postbac student. The English requirements are similar to First-year and Transfer undergraduate degree admission, but the college you're applying to will make the final admission decision about your academic admissibility.

Academic requirements and admissibility are determined by college/department for each applicant.

  • 6.5 IELTS
