Here are some three or three-and-a-half year degree scenarios. Remember that every student's situation is unique. Contact our admissions office to see how Degree in Three can help you graduate in less than four years!
How does Degree in Three work?
The Degree in Three option is an accelerated course of study for highly motivated students in select majors. Each degree includes the same rigorous academic requirements, but can be completed in three years instead of four with these unique plans.
Talk to your admission counselor (before you enroll) and/or meet with an academic advisor (after you enroll) to decide if the Degree in Three option is a good match for you.
We also encourage any students pursuing the Degree in Three option for a bachelor's degree in three years to be early birds for Summer Preparation Days registration and all subsequent registration opportunities.
