"The Dual Degree Program is an invaluable part of my college life and has simplified my road to success. The Transfer Specialists and my peers have helped to remove the fear of moving forward out of the process. I feel like I can and will accomplish all of my educational and life goals because I have the support of my DDP family to lean on. I am empowered."
