Three-Year Degrees


Rosemont College’s three-year bachelor’s degree is a unique opportunity for highly motivated and academically prepared students who are focused on a specific major. Faculty advisors customize a degree plan to include any advanced placement or other college-level work you may have already completed.


The three-year option also provides families with a significant cost savings in financing a student’s college education. Students finishing their degree in three years versus four would save the equivalent of a full year’s tuition (and room and board) while the student has the ability to begin graduate school or enter the job market one year earlier.


The three-year degree option is an incredible opportunity for high achieving students who are able to handle the rigors of accelerated learning.

Participating Majors 


Requirements and Eligibility

Candidates for the three-year program should have a minimum high school GPA of 3.50 and combined Math and Critical reading SAT scores of 1100.

  • Students take fifteen credits in their first semester
  • Eighteen credits in subsequent semesters
  • Attend two summer sessions after the first and second years (unless transferring AP/IB credits or other college credits eliminating one or both summer sessions).

Cost and Affordability

College is a valuable investment in your future, but still needs to be affordable and available to everyone. Financial aid, scholarships, and grants are available for those who qualify helping to lessen the cost, but the three-year degree program introduces tuition and fee savings of over $30,000 to a resident student making it very attractive for eligible students.

Campus Life

In addition to the many clubs and organizations at Rosemont, three-year degree candidates participate in enriched faculty mentorships and concentrated advising as well as research and experiential learning. And because three-year candidates are automatically accepted into Rosemont’s honors program, they attend lectures, museums, musical performances, and other intellectual and artistic events. Plus three-year candidates have access to special housing options after the first year.
