A three-year, year-round degree pathway for students
Students can earn free summer tuition, fees and housing through the Degree in 3 program.
Degree in 3 also provides on-campus leadership internships and/or research opportunities and academic support programs throughout students’ three years.
Students who live on campus can save up to $27,000 (tuition, plus room and board) - roughly a 25% savings of what a degree would cost over a four-year period. Commuter students can save up to $14,000 (tuition) over the same period, realizing significant cost-savings.
