All students are welcome and encouraged to explore this program. Students entering UM with college equivalent credits earned through Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, Running Start or other similar programs are particularly well positioned to complete Degree in 3. Students entering without college equivalent credits can complete the three-year option by taking summer session courses each year. It is highly recommended that students interested in the Degree in 3 Program participate in Summer Start at UM to get a fast start on success.
