Part of the Bologna Process involves the standardization of three-year undergraduate degrees across Europe -- prompting debates in the United States about how three-year degrees should be viewed in graduate admissions. A new survey of U.S. graduate schools by the Institute of International Education finds that 53 percent of respondents have official graduate admissions policies regarding three-year, "Bologna-compliant" degrees, while 47 percent do not. Among those institutions that do have policies, 33 percent view them as equivalent to U.S. undergraduate degrees, 14 percent say they're not equivalent, 35 percent say the determination varies by department or field, and 18 percent say "other" (with most of those saying "other" explaining that faculty usually make the determination on a case-by-case basis).
