Accelerated Dual Degrees (ADDs)

Accelerated Dual Degrees (ADDs)

Accelerated Dual Degrees (ADDs)

Accelerated Dual Degree programs (formerly known as CADPs: Combined Advanced Degree Programs) combine a Rowan University undergraduate degree with a graduate-level degree. Students typically work on an accelerated track, and are also permitted to double-count up to 12 sh/credits toward both degrees, and pay the undergraduate rate for those 12 credits, saving students both time and money as they work toward their educational goals. *  

*Not every ADD leads to two degrees and not every ADD allows 12 credits to double-count toward both the undergraduate and graduate transcripts. Additionally, some ADDs follow different degree awarding timelines and tuition models. Please refer to the academic department(s) which houses your particular ADD to discuss program requirements, timing, and benefits. 

Important Notes

  • All ADD student records will be maintained and updated within the Office of the University Registrar.
  • ADD forms are required for auditing purposes and to alter student records.
  • Student cannot enter an ADD via a “Change of Major” (online form or email) request.
  • Students that have difficulty self-registering for courses – aside from the level restriction - will be directed to request a waiver from the course professor/department.
  • Students in an ADD cannot also use Senior Privilege to take additional graduate coursework as an undergraduate student above the 12 graduate credits (or otherwise, as determined by the specific ADD agreement) permitted as part of the ADD.
  • Students who are pursing concurrent programs (a second undergraduate major, a minor, a CUGS, etc.) should finish all requirements for the concurrent program PRIOR TO transitioning into the graduate portion of their ADD. A student cannot be simultaneously enrolled in a graduate program and an undergraduate program. 
  • It is important to note that students in education ADDs will not be considered education majors until they are active in their graduate major – this may impact Financial Aid, grants etc.
  • Although ADD students apply twice for graduation (undergraduate, and then graduate level), they will pay only one graduation fee.
  • If at any point, it is determined that the student cannot successfully continue in an ADD, the Program Coordinator/Advisor will inform the University Registrar and a traditional, alternate undergraduate program will be determined and updated on all student records.
