3 Year Degree Pathways

Undergraduate students entering Youngstown State University may be able to complete a Baccalaureate degree in three years. Students needing any remedial coursework will not be able to complete their degree in three years. In order to complete a degree in three years, students must enter the university with credits from one or more of the following:

  • Advanced Placement credits
  • College in High School credits
  • International Baccalaureate program credits
  • PSEOP credits

The type of work that should be completed prior to the student entering the university will depend on the specific degree program. The sample pathways provided indicate the type of prior work that would be most applicable for the degree.

Students interested in completing their degree in three years MUST work closely with an advisor to ensure that they are completing all degree requirements in a timely manner.
