Combined College and Professional Degrees

A student who is granted early admission to a doctoral-level program will be granted a leave of absence during his or her senior year at Marshall University. At the end of the first year of professional school, the student is then eligible to receive a bachelor’s degree from Marshall University, provided that at least 90 undergraduate credit hours must have been completed with a grade point average of 2.0, and that all requirements for graduation are met except the completion of a major. An applicant for a bachelor’s degree must present certification from the professional school that he or she has successfully completed the first year of coursework and that a sufficient number of credit hours has been completed to total 120 when added to the hours earned at the undergraduate level.
