Program Overview

Assumption’s partnership programs are designed to provide students with a strong liberal arts education in the sciences and mathematics as well as state-of-the-art engineering training.

**Just Announced April 2016**: The School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) at Washington University in St. Louis

Assumption’s dual degree program partnership with the School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) at Washington University in St. Louis allows student to work towards both an undergraduate degree from AC and either an additional undergraduate degree from SEAS (2-year option) or a combination of an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree from SEAS (3-year option).

In this program, students spend three or four years of study at Assumption College and then complete two or three additional years of study at SEAS (depending on their course of study). At least 90 units of acceptable transfer credit must be earned by students at AC before they can formally enroll at SEAS.

  • Assumption students who choose the 2-year option will spend two years at SEAS to complete a SEAS undergraduate degree and will be classified as SEAS undergraduate students both years.  
  • Assumption students who choose the 3-year option will spend three years at SEAS to complete the requirements for both an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree and will be classified as SEAS graduate students for all three years.

Assumption will accept all units completed at SEAS and count these units toward the completion of an Assumption College undergraduate degree.

To be eligible for admission to the dual degree program, students must be recommended by Assumption College and, prior to entering SEAS, complete the entrance requirements specified by SEAS. Admission to SEAS is not guaranteed and SEAS cannot guarantee that financial support will be available to students admitted to the program.

Assumption students who have already completed all of their undergraduate degree requirements are also eligible to apply for this program if they apply within 12 months of earning their undergraduate degree.

University of Notre Dame College of Engineering

Assumption College’s agreement with the University of Notre Dame College of Engineering allows qualified Assumption students to earn a B.A. in Chemistry, Environmental Science, Mathematics or Computer Science from Assumption College and a B.S. in one of several fields of Engineering from the University of Notre Dame.  The program is designed to provide the student with a strong liberal arts education in the sciences and mathematics as well as state-of-the-art engineering training at the University of Notre Dame, one of the nation’s leading engineering universities. 

Students attend Assumption for 3 years, where they pursue coursework in one of the following tracks specially approved to count toward an undergraduate degree in a major at Assumption, and transfer credit toward an undergraduate degree in a major at Notre Dame College of Engineering:

After the fifth semester the student applies for transfer admission as a first-semester junior to the specific program offered by Notre Dame College of Engineering. Applicants who have a cumulative GPA 3.3 or higher, at least a C in all courses, and a recommendation from Assumption’s 3+2 Engineering Program coordinator, can normally be expected to be admitted to full standing and complete Notre Dame’s engineering degree requirements in 2 years. Upon transfer to Notre Dame, students receive the same consideration for financial aid as other transfer applicants.

Upon completing the program, the student receives a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in their major from Assumption, and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.) from Notre Dame’s College of Engineering in their major.
