Dual Degree Requirements
A dual-degree program is one in which a student pursues two distinct master's degrees simultaneously. Any program which can lead to the award of two Master's Degrees is, in its entirety, a SPECIAL PROGRAM and it must be approved by the Academic Council. For more info, review the NPS Academic Council Policy Manual.
Calculating Academic Profile Codes
The NPS Admissions office evaluates applicants based on three criteria. The result is the assignment of an Academic Profile Code (APC). This is a three-digit code, which summarizes pertinent portions of a student's prior college performance. Read more about APCs on the Academic Catalog website.
