Undergraduates accepted under a dual-degree program may take three graduate courses during their final undergraduate year at Rutgers, reducing the minimum time required to complete the program to as little as a year and a half.  

Students who are attending part-time or who must proceed more slowly may require more than two years to finish the program.  Consistent with the policies of the Graduate School, students must have completed their thesis by the end of their fifth year.
