Students receive their associate's degree from COD and their bachelor's degree from the partnering university.

In addition, students are able to obtain an affordable four-year degree for less than $34,000 without sacrificing academic quality.

"Our 3+1 program is a new way of partnering with prestigious area colleges and universities to offer our students a chance to earn their bachelor's degrees without leaving campus and facing a lifetime of debt," said College of DuPage President Robert L. Breuder.

College of DuPage first partnered with Lewis University for a 3+1 program in Criminal/Social Justice in 2011. Currently, 55 students are taking Lewis classes at COD, with 13 students anticipating graduation in May 2013.

In addition to Lewis University, College of DuPage has created 3+1 programs with Benedictine University, Concordia University, Governor's State University and Roosevelt University in a number of areas, including Management, Fire Service Administration, Computer Science, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Nursing.
