What is the ‘3 to Degree’ Program?

If you take a walk down the College of Business and Health Administration hallway on campus, you’ve probably seen or heard the phrase ‘3 to Degree’ around campus, but do you know what it means? Our College of Business and Health Administration offers an awesome opportunity to earn your Master of Business Administration in a shorter amount of time than if you were to go to a traditional graduate school, and at a much lower cost.

The term ‘3 to Degree’ was coined in reference to the 3 courses that are taken during your undergraduate degree that count for dual credit towards your undergraduate degree as well as your graduate degree. This helps you earn your master’s in a timelier manner because after you complete the 3 dual courses, you only have 4 certificate courses and 5 general courses left to complete, and this can be completed all over the course of one year, whereas typical master’s programs usually take 2-3 years to finish.

At the end of the degree, you end up paying around $16.7K which is significantly less than the average MBA cost of ~$20-$25K. How do we offer such a great deal at a lower price? At USF, undergraduate tuition is the same for 12-18 credit hours, and when you take the 3 graduate level courses during your undergrad degree, it is automatically wrapped up in that predetermined tuition price. Also, our MBA level certificate classes are offered at half price tuition of $399/credit hour. This is a great deal for those who are planning on furthering their education and want an opportunity to do it in less time and for a fraction of the price.
