Use Your College in High School Credits to Earn a Degree in as Little as Three Years

A Degree In As Little As Three YearsStarting in the fall semester of 2023, incoming first-year traditional bachelor's degree students who have earned at least 12 college credits in high school will be able to complete their Seton Hill degree in as little as three years. This highly personalized academic plan can be created for specified majors throughout all five schools of study at Seton Hill: Business, Humanities, Visual and Performing Arts, Natural and Health Sciences, and Education and Applied Social Sciences.

"This new effort will provide students with a personalized road map that will allow them to graduate early, saving them time and money, and allowing them to enter their career field or graduate school at an accelerated rate.”

- Seton Hill University President Mary Finger
