3-Year Degrees

Save money. Save time. Jumpstart your future!

Huntington University’s concentrated programs will allow you to earn your bachelor’s degree in 3 years.

The 1-in-3 degree program is designed for those students who are dedicated, focused in achieving their life goals and would like to take an expedited journey through college.

Even though you’ll save time and money, you won’t miss any of the traditional college experiences.

Save Money.

By eliminating your fourth year at HU and starting your career a year early, you can realize a potential financial benefit by saving a year of education costs and earning a professional salary a year sooner. Also by utilizing dual enrollment credits in high school, you will pay approximately 1/3 less for each per-credit hour and you are able to transfer those credits directly to Huntington University.

Save Time.

In order to earn the necessary 120 credit hours required to graduate from Huntington, you will take a full course load each of your six semesters, supplementing any remaining necessary credit hours with summer and May Term courses. HU will also honor dual enrollment or AP classes you earned in high school so that, depending on the amount of credits you have already earned, you could begin your first year at HU as a sophomore.

Jumpstart Your Future!

Whether you intend to immediately put your degree to work or go on to graduate school, HU’s 1-in-3 program will get you there faster. For students who are career minded, HU provides real-world experience through hands-on learning, mission trips, leadership opportunities and collaborative research. Huntington’s Friesen Center for Experiential Learning will assist you in gaining internships, practicums and volunteer opportunities that will help set you apart and prepare you to make an immediate impact in the workforce. And if continuing your education is your goal, HU’s faculty will ensure you’re ready for the rigor of graduate school. Huntington’s pre-med and pre-law programs boast nearly 100% acceptance rates, and many HU alumni have gone to study at prestigious universities like Yale, Penn State, Indiana, and Duke.
