3-Year Degree Options

William Jewell College offers accelerated three-year degree options in a number of majors if you want to complete your undergraduate degrees in less than four years. More and more students are bringing credits to college from other sources, including dual-enrollment courses and AP credits, that give them a head start. Others want to focus their energy and continue their coursework between semesters and during summers in order to graduate before their peers, enabling them to enter career fields or graduate schools a year early. For many, saving a year’s worth of tuition and room and board expenses also is an important consideration.

With small classes, accessible faculty and the ability to provide an individual academic experience, Jewell is the perfect place to help meet the challenges and opportunities that accelerated programs present. Advising will begin even before the first day of classes; you will know exactly what you need to do to prepare for and succeed in one of our three-year programs. And later on, if you choose to slow down and extend your college career to four years, you will be able to do that, too.
