- How do I join Degree in Three?
Students should first attend an informational meeting, held at the beginning of each semester. You will then contact your academic advisor and schedule a meeting to discuss your goals to accelerate, incoming college credit, and whether Degree in Three is possible. To formally join, you will need to complete the application
with your academic advisor. Once your application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the Degree in Three coordinator and you will be notified.
- When can I join Degree in Three?
You are able to join Degree in Three at any point during your time as an undergraduate at FSU. While most students join their freshmen year, you can complete the application at any time with your academic advisor.
- How many credits should I enter with?
You do not have to earn a certain amount of accelerated credit in order to join Degree in Three. However, a higher number of credits may keep you from taking heavier course loads in the fall and spring terms. It is more important how your incoming credits can apply to your major (covering prerequisite courses, minor, foreign language, etc.).
- I want to pursue a graduate program which requires completion of specific prerequisites. Can I still graduate in three years?
Whether you can complete prerequisites (as well as all major and university requirements) in three years will all depend on your incoming college credit, the requirements of your specific major, and how many courses you take per semester. You must speak with your academic advisor about the possibility of Degree in Three before deciding on this accelerated path.
- Does Degree in Three look good for application to graduate programs?
You should speak with graduate programs of interest to see if/how Degree in Three will be viewed on your application. Some graduate programs place an emphasis on experiential learning, which may take 4 years to complete.
- How do I find my Degree in Three advisor?
