Three-Year Degree Programs

Jump on the Fast Track

If you intend to major in one of these areas, it may be possible to become a Kiest-Morgan Scholar and complete your bachelor’s degree in only three years.


Business & Management


Computer & Technology

Criminal Justice




Political Science


Sports Management

For qualifying students in these majors, Thomas offers a Three-Year Degree Program that saves you money (at least 25% with one less year of tuition, room, and board) and prepares you to get started in a career you love even sooner. You’ll enjoy the same benefits of a traditional Thomas education in campus life activities, a varsity or club sports, study abroad, and internships, but you’ll finish in less time.

How It Works

You would complete six classes at Thomas each fall and spring semester. During the summer months after year one and year two, you would complete four (two per summer) compressed courses online. These summer sessions will carry no additional charges.

Three-Plus-One Programs

Students who are part of the Three-Year Degree Program can choose to enroll in Thomas College’s well-established Accelerated MBA program, with the goal of completing both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business or accounting in four years.

Program Qualifications

The Three-Year Degree Program is recommended for students demonstrating high potential for academic achievement based on three-part SAT scores or ACT scores, GPA, and courses taken. In our experience, this program is a great fit for students with at least an SAT score of 1090 (Math and Evidenced-Based Reading) and GPA of 3.4, and familiarity with difficult classroom material.
