Joint or Dual Degree Programs

Collaborative academic agreements are subject to the SACSCOC Agreements Involving Joint and Dual Academic Awards Policy and Procedures, and some may require prior approval as detailed in the SACSCOC Substantive Change Policy and Procedures. If the arrangement involves international agreements, please also refer to the UT Dallas International Center's Initiating Agreements.

These academic agreements foster international collaboration between faculty, scholars, and students at UT Dallas and international institutions.

Note: The joint or dual degree programs refer to a UT Dallas degree and a degree with another external institution. UT Dallas schools / programs may develop internal double majors or double degrees as outlined in Develop Internal Double Majors / Double Degrees with a different review/approval process.

For assistance in completing or submitting any of these forms, please contact Dr. Serenity Rose King, associate vice president for institutional success and decision support by email or telephone, 972.883.6749.
