BBA students may obtain two degrees upon graduation, one from SolBridge and one from one of our partner universities under the 2+2 Program. Students complete two years of study at SolBridge and two years at another school. Those who wish to pursue this line of study must follow a specific curriculum that matches the course and credit requirements of SolBridge and that of the partner institution.

Generally, students who participate in the 2+2 program are not required to pay any fees to SolBridge after they transfer to the partner university, and any scholarships held at SolBridge prior to the transfer are void. In some instances however, the agreement between SolBridge and the host university may require students to continue paying tuition at SolBridge. Students are advised to consult with the Study Abroad Office about payment terms and scholarships before applying.

Requirements

In order to apply for an outbound 2+2 program, students must meet the following SolBridge criteria:

SOLBRIDGE REQUIREMENTS
Credits 70 credits completed in 4 regular semesters
GPA 2.0 (for SolBridge degree)

Students should also ensure that they meet the host university’s admission requirements (please visit the host university website for details). Students must also meet all the important deadlines set by the host university.

After transferring to a partner university, students in the 2+2 program are required to send official copies of their transcripts to the SolBridge Study Abroad Office each semester to maintain their academic status at SolBridge. Students must also keep the Study Abroad office informed of their registration status at the partner school.

Upon completion of the program, students are required to submit official copies of their final transcript and a copy of their diploma to the SolBridge Study Abroad Office to obtain a SolBridge degree. Students are also required to apply for graduation and complete the graduation checklist to obtain their SolBridge degree.
