Students already possessing a Bachelor’s degree may pursue a second Bachelor’s degree in any of the following four degree programs at AUK: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Engineering, or Bachelor of Science. Students must meet all AUK undergraduate admission requirements for the semester of intended admission and must submit all appropriate application materials and supporting documents to the Office of Admissions. Requirements for completing a second Bachelor’s degree are as follows:

AUK Graduates
Students with a BBA degree from AUK may not take a second BBA degree. However, they may take a BA, BE, or BS degree. Students with a bachelor’s degree from AUK are assumed to have met all general education requirements and free electives through their first AUK bachelor’s degree. They are not subject to any further requirements of general education and electives, unless otherwise noted by the Office of the Registrar. They must complete major requirements for the second bachelor’s degree specified by individual program sections in this catalog.

Non-AUK Graduates
Students who earned their first bachelor’s degree from another institution must meet all AUK general education requirements. AUK will evaluate coursework from their first bachelor’s degree for possible transfer of courses. No more than 60 credits may be transferred. Students from internationally-accredited four year institutions of higher education approved by the Ministry of Higher Education in the State of Kuwait with grades of “C” and above may petition for up to an additional 30 credits. Any general education requirements not satisfied by transfer credits must be taken in residence at AUK. Students with a Business degree from another institution may not pursue a BBA degree at AUK. However, they may pursue a BA, BE, or BS degree.

Students must satisfactorily complete at least the final 30 credits in residence at AUK and fulfill all academic program requirements in order to graduate. Non-AUK graduates are subject to these additional conditions:
