Bachelor's Degree in Three Years

In this Section

Students are able to save as much as $25,000 by opting for a plan to earn a bachelor's degree in three years at Clarkson University. This option is open to students in the top 10 percent of their high school class. Approximately 40 percent of current Clarkson students are in this category. The mechanics of the three-year bachelor of science degree call for students to earn 108 credits by taking six courses each semester. The remaining 12 credits will comprise a combination of advanced placement (AP) credits achieved during high school (approximately 30 percent of Clarkson students now enter the University with AP credits) and special projects conducted over one or two summer sessions.
