2nd Bachelor's Degree - General Education Confusion
#1
I just realized some schools exempt 2nd bachelor degree students from GE requirements. I'm looking into getting a second BA with UMPI & their site says "Students entering the University of Maine at Presque Isle as degree seekers who have a completed baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution will receive transfer credit for their previous degree work and will be exempt from meeting the specific requirements of the GEC."
I just found this policy on their site & now these 30 GE credits they said I'm missing are confusing me...  Huh

Anything that is on the http://www.umpi.edu website or catalog.umpi.edu website please don't trust. You will need to email YourPace directly and ask them.

The YourPace rules are 100% different than the UMPI GEC, they have different overlaps, and different GEC requirements as well.

Confirmation from Jessica just now - apparently this policy is for YourPace programs as well Big Grin

I guess she didn't realize or had forgotten that I have a BA already

For the YourPace program - I can confirm GEC requirements are waived with a previous bachelors degree. I was not required to complete any GEC requirements because of a existing bachelors degree.

Thanks for the clarification!
Now is clear that is more viable a 2nd degree.

Many institutions have a 60 credit limit on transfer and some allow a max of 90 credits for transfer; at the undergraduate level - most or generally many institutions allow the bulk of the general education/free electives to be transferred into their degrees. This is the same for second degree applicants, those requirements would be waived.
