Univ. of Colo. considers 3-year degrees
BOULDER, Colo. – An undergraduate college degree in three years? It could be an option at the University of Colorado one day.
The university confirms that it may consider joining colleges that offer fast-track undergraduate programs to those wanting to save money.
Similar programs are already in place at campuses of Western Illinois University and the University of North Carolina.
CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard tells the Daily Camera newspaper that college administrators have talked about the three-year degrees, but have not brought any formal recommendations.
CU-Boulder’s long-term “Flagship 2030” plan suggests that the university switch to a year-round, three-semester system.
