Post-Baccalaureate

A post-baccalaureate student has earned an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution and is taking undergraduate courses for personal edification or certification.

A post-baccalaureate degree seeking student is a student that has completed the requirements for and has been awarded a bachelor's degree, who is returning to university studies with the intent to complete the requirements for an additional Bachelors Degree.

A post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking student is a student that has completed the requirements for and has been awarded a bachelor's degree, but seeks only to return to university studies for reasons other than the completion of an additional undergraduate degree.

Houston Baptist University is a great place to earn a second degree or take courses for personal development. With more than 45 major areas of study to choose from, HBU offers a wide variety of courses and programs to assist you in furthering your education.
