Qualified students may take up to 12 semester hours before applying for degree candidacy. Students who have completed the associate degree may enroll in the bachelor's degree program. All semester hours earned through Susquehanna's evening associate degree program will be applied to the bachelor's degree. Upon completion of the associate degree, students may take up to 12 semester hours as a non-matriculated student. After that, students will pay the stated tuition for the bachelor's degree program.
