Dual Degree Program (DDP)

The Dual Degree Program (DDP), a unique partnership between Roosevelt University and select community colleges, provides a pathway for full-time students to earn quality, accessible, and affordable associate and bachelor’s degrees close to home.  The DDP addresses the region’s need for a highly educated workforce and the nation’s agenda to increase the number of citizens with college degrees.
