The DDP is called "dual degree" because it assists you in the completion of your associate degree and then enables you to transfer seamlessly to Governors State University to complete your bachelor's degree. The benefits of the Dual Degree Program include working closely with academic advisors from both institutions, participating in student life at GovState prior to transferring, and competitive scholarship opportunities just for DDP students. Students who are interested in participating in the Dual Degree Program are encouraged to join as early as possible while pursuing the associate degree at their community college.
