Criteria for Second Degree Students

You are considered a second-degree student if you already have a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science or an equivalent degree and want to obtain another undergraduate degree. Each academic department determines the specific admissions criteria for second-degree students.

Students holding a bachelor’s degree or higher who wish to enroll for the purpose of obtaining an Initial Michigan Provisional Teaching Certificate should apply as a second-degree seeking student.

Students pursuing a second degree will pay upper-level tuition.

Steps to Apply for Second Degree Students

  1. Complete the online application.
  2. Have your official college transcript(s) from each college or university you attended mailed to:
    Undergraduate Admissions
    North Foundation Hall, Room 101
    318 Meadow Brook Road
    Rochester, MI 48309-4454

    The transcript must bear the seal of the institution and must not be stamped "issued to student." If you have attended more than one college, transcripts from each must be provided.

Once Oakland University receives your application, we will:

  • Process your application to ensure all materials have been received.
  • Gather information needed for the academic department to make an admissions decision.
  • Forward your file to the appropriate academic department for a decision.

When a decision is made, OU will contact you via U.S. mail. If you receive a delay decision, you should contact Undergraduate Admissions at (800) OAK-UNIV or (248) 370-3360.

Criteria for Post-Baccalaureate Students

You are considered a post-baccalaureate student if you already have a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science or an equivalent degree and want to take additional courses not related to another degree.

Under post-baccalaureate status, your previous academic work will not be evaluated by the registrar and you will be admitted as a non-degree seeking candidate.

Students taking post-baccalaureate courses will pay upper-level tuition. Under this status, you do not qualify for financial aid.

Steps to Apply for Post-Baccalaureate Students

  1. Complete the online application.
  2. Have your proof of degree (transcript or copy of your diploma) sent to:
