Established in 1993, this unique dual-degree program builds strong partnerships with international institutions. These partnerships enable students to study at their home institution during their normal semester and then take classes at Tompkins Cortland for one or two semesters, including summers, to complete an American associate’s degree on campus or via a combination of in-person or asynchronous and synchronous online classes. Students will enjoy classmates from other campuses around the world as well as make friends with local TC3 students.
To prepare you for a collegiate level of academic English, all students are able to take ESL classes with students from around the world. During the program, you work with an academic advisor from Tompkins Cortland who will help you plan and finish your degree in a timely manner.
We currently offer our most popular dual-degree programs through our specialized two-semester programs. However, any degree program at TC3 has the potential to become a dual degree with your institution. There are many professional national and international certificates that you can supplement your degree with. Some of our most popular programs include:
You can also take advantage of our partnerships with universities such as the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), State University of New York (SUNY), or others, to complete a second bachelor’s degree or master’s degree in the United States.
