Joint Degree Program


Single degree issued by at least two higher educational agencies offering an integrated program – both names on diploma – MUST APPLY to both.



Diploma Factors

ONE degree diploma; TWO agency names on diploma


Start coursework at Agency A, then add coursework at Agency B (one degree so only one completion date)

Application/Acceptance Factors

  • OPTIMAL: Apply to both agencies at same time and get accepted to both programs at same time.
  • LESS OPTIMAL: Apply to each agency at separate times and get accepted to second program separately, separated by time from acceptance to first program.

Financial Aid and Scholarship Factors

Financial aid provided at first agency does not usually carry to second agency.
