Degree in Three

Degree in Three is a special program designed to assist students who wish to graduate in less than four years. It is most appropriate for students who enter the university with college credits earned through dual enrollment or through credit by exam, especially if those credits relate to their majors of choice.

Though FSU cannot guarantee that you will be able to graduate in three years, Degree in Three will provide you with the tools that you will need to determine if this is right for you and, if so, to plan and implement a program of studies.

High school students are strongly encouraged to contact Katie Grissom, Degree in Three Coordinator for help in planning high school courses that will complement their intended college majors.
