Does a student need to major in a specific program to graduate in 3 years?

Not necessarily, however, specific programs have developed program plans that are backed by a 3-year guarantee. Depending on courses transferred in, a student could major in several areas and graduate in 3 years.

Is there a different process for a student who wants to graduate in 3 years, but is not interested in the programs backed by the guarantee?

Students must apply for the 3-year graduation program, at least three weeks before their enrollment day event on campus. The admissions office will explore the student’s program of interest, and a faculty advisor will create a program plan with the student.
