What are the admission requirements?
Students should apply to an approved accelerated degree program once they have achieved at least 72 undergraduate semester hours (junior standing). You need to have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or above (some programs may have higher GPA requirements). You will also need to apply to the Graduate School. Check with your program to see if they have specific program applications in addition to the Graduate School application.
I’m accepted to an accelerated program, when do I get to enroll in graduate courses?
Once you have at least 90 hours (senior standing) you can enroll in up to 6 hours of graduate credit each semester for no more than 12 total graduate hours. Check with your program requirements for specific courses.
Am I eligible to receive financial aid for my graduate courses taken while finishing my bachelor’s degree?
Yes, graduate courses are eligible as long as they are being counted toward your undergraduate degree.
Will graduate courses count toward my undergraduate enrollment status (full-time, part-time, etc)?
Yes, if the graduate courses are part of your undergraduate degree plan they will count toward your enrollment status.
