UNCG Announces New 3-Year Accelerated Degree Program

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The University of North Carolina at Greensboro has launched UNCG in 3, a new program that allows highly motivated students to graduate in just three years.

The program is designed for the growing number of high school seniors who enter the university with transferable college credit, earned through Advanced Placement (AP), UNCG iSchool or other early college programs. Freshmen entering with 12 or more credit hours will be eligible to participate.

The first UNCG in 3 students will start in fall 2010.  Students enrolled in UNCG in 3 are able to save up to $8,000 in tuition, fees, room and board over a typical four-year program. They will earn the same high-quality degree UNCG typically offers, but at an accelerated pace by taking classes year-round. The University will provide both priority advisor support and priority scheduling to ensure that all degree requirements are met.

“Thanks to programs like NC Learn and Earn, Early College and UNCG’s iSchool, and many entering freshmen have earned 12 hours of college credit before they start college. UNCG in 3 is designed to allow those highly motivated students to continue their accelerated progress,” said Continual Learning Dean Robert M. Brown.

UNCG in 3 will be starting with the following degree programs: Accounting, African-American Studies, Business Administration, Communications Studies, Economics, Elementary Education, English, Entrepreneurship, Finance, German, History, Information Systems and Operations Management, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Romance Languages and Russian.

Admitted first-year students can visit the website. They can declare their interest when they apply to UNCG, when they accept, or when they attend the summer SOAR program.
