The University of Kansas is offering a three-year path to a bachelor’s degree.

The “Degree In Three” program is a partnership between KU, six school districts and three community colleges. Students will begin earning college credit in high school. They will then be able to complete an associate’s degree in one year at one of the partnering community colleges and finish their final two years at KU.

Lowering the number of years to earn a degree — and, subsequently, the number of years paying tuition — can greatly reduce the cost of higher education for a student and is one of the primary motivators for the program. It originally started about three years ago, but KU and its partners decided to have a formalized version of the program start this fall.
