Option Two:
  The student completes the portfolio with course petitions for both concentrations. The student then completes the concentrations with a minimum of 15 credit hours of course work at DBU. (Twelve (12) hours must be upper-level.) *  
Option Three:
 

Inverted Degree Program students have the option of using the technical/occupational semester hours transferred in for one of their two concentrations. In that case, the 12 hour upper-level requirement is waived for the concentration for which the technical/occupational hours are used. The student then finishes the major by completing a minimum of 15 credit hours in the classroom at DBU in the second concentration (Twelve (12) hours must be upper-level)*

If an inverted student chooses not to utilize technical/occupational hours for one concentration, then each concentration must include a minimum of 12 upper-level hours.
