3-Year Degree Option
The three-year Bachelor’s degree option accelerates the traditional undergraduate process and is perfect for highly-motivated students. With an academically rigorous schedule, students save time and reach the workforce or graduate school earlier while still gaining the skills and experience their career paths demand. You also can still engage fully in campus life — be an athlete, lead a club, complete an internship (or two), conduct research with a professor, and be in on all the Milligan traditions.
Graduating in three years requires full-time enrollment for three consecutive fall and spring semesters as well as two summer terms, as outlined in the chart below. You’ll complete a total of 128 credits, including core curriculum, major, and optional minor or elective courses. Dual enrollment or AP credits may reduce your load or the need for some summer sessions.
