The 54 credits for the coordinated program typically would be completed in both programs at the same time, rather than one program after the other. A student not completing the requirements for the coordinated degree program would need to complete all requirements for an individual program to receive a degree.
Students in the coordinated degree program must complete all degree requirements within seven years of the first enrollment semester as a degree student.
