Accelerated degree plans
Students who are interested in an accelerated 3-year plan to earn a bachelor’s degree are encouraged to take the national examinations through the College Board to qualify for academic credit through Advanced Placement and CLEP Testing prior to starting the degree program. Additionally, students are encouraged to meet individually with an academic adviser to discuss course planning and prerequisite sequences, the importance of gaining relevant work and volunteer experiences, and balancing academics with professional development opportunities. Sample course plans for accelerated bachelor’s degree programs are available on the College website.
Accelerated concurrent bachelor’s and master’s degree programs are also available for students who have excelled academically and are seeking to complete two degrees: Diet and Exercise BS/MS, Nutritional Science BS/MS, and Food Science BS/MBA.
