Your Student Can Graduate in 3+1

Did you know that at Grand Canyon University students can fast track their education? If your student already knows his purpose and is looking forward to starting on his path, the 3+1 Program may be the perfect opportunity for him to enter the workforce sooner.

Our 3+1 Program gives students the opportunity to align their undergraduate and graduate studies early in their college career. We call it our 3+1 Program because a student will earn his bachelor’s degree in three years and his master’s degree in just one year.

3+1 courses are offered in the same format as our traditional campus undergraduate programs during the day—students study in a traditional classroom setting with expert faculty leading the discussions and direction of each course. Students take courses year-round in order to complete their studies early.

There are serious benefits to the 3+1 Program. For example, by participating in the program, students save time completing their education and, therefore, save money on tuition and room and board costs. Plus, students will be able to enter the workforce sooner and start earning for their hard work!

Master’s students enrolled in this program are eligible to interview for an Instructional Assistantship (IA), which is one of our many scholarship opportunities. An IA assists faculty by grading homework, preparing coursework, researching, tutoring, proctoring makeup exams, running breakout sessions within the classroom and assisting with the online learning management system.

For traditional campus undergraduate students who are interested in graduate school, speak to your student services counselor about our Elective Edge program. This program allows qualified students to schedule graduate-level courses as elective credits while fulfilling undergraduate credit requirements. Save time and money by getting a head start on graduate school—and potentially graduate faster!
