Academic Catalog

Double Counting Policy

Starting with the 2020/21 TUG Academic Catalog, two courses (6-8 credits in total) can be double counted for purposes of completing a double major or any combination of major and minor. 

There will be no further exceptions beyond the two course limitation.  Using a replacement course for a third double counted course will not be allowed.  Students are not allowed to double major in programs with more than six (6) credits of overlap.

Multiple counting of hours is allowed between the General Education Core and a major or minor. 

Business Division Transition Plan Through May 2024 

Current business students are exempt from the double counting policy until May 2024 (conclusion of the spring 2024 semester) in order to accommodate this change.  Current business students will be allowed to continue with their current major/minor combinations, including double counting, until they complete their degree.

Any business student who readmits, and is assigned to the 2024 catalog, must abide by this new double counting policy.

All double-counting allowances will be processed using the current Academic Policy Exception on-line form.
