Dual Degree Programs

The FVSU-CDEP program has established 3+2 dual-degree programs with Georgia Tech (GT), the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), Penn State University (PSU), the University of Texas-Austin (UT-Austin), the University of Texas Pan American (UTPA), and the University of Arkansas (UARK). The dual-degree programs operate by students enrolling for three years at FVSU and majoring in mathematics, chemistry or biology and then transferring to a partnering institution to continue their second degree option. After successful completion of both programs, students will receive two Bachelor of Science degrees: one degree from FVSU and the second degree from a collaborating university.

Via CDEP, FVSU offers dual degree programs in engineering in collaboration with GT, UTPA, and UARK, and both engineering and health physics with UNLV. A dual degree in geosciences (geology or geophysics) or petroleum engineering is offered at PSU and UT-Austin. Additionally, the PSU geosciences program gives students the option of pursuing a 3+3 program that results in the graduate receiving a B. S. degree from FVSU and a M.S. degree from PSU.

SCOHLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS (COMPETITIVE)

In addition to completing the FAFSA, applicants must apply and be accepted into FVSU to be considered for a CDEP scholarship.
