Can students take longer than one year to complete the campus program?

Yes, this is a possibility for both fall and spring entrants, but Career Services has found that staying a third semester does not improve a student's chances for employment. Instead, consider extending the program if you

  • would like take fewer courses to leave more time to adjust to the program or for the wide variety of activities that Duke offers.
  • want to take additional courses. Note that additional courses beyond the eight required courses may be charged additional tuition.

If a student would like to prolong the program, they must speak to a program administrator so that correct tuition is charged and registration limits are set.
