Are you a current Merrimack undergraduate student? Then you have the option of taking one or two free graduate courses during your senior undergraduate year, which are covered by the Double Warrior program. The Double Warrior scholarship rate will still be applied for your remaining graduate credits should you enroll in an eligible master’s degree program. This helps you get a head start on getting an advanced degree and boosting your earning potential sooner.
