Get a jump start on your master's degree by taking advantage of our Early Access Program.
Students maintaining an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher may take up to nine semester hours at the graduate level during their senior year. These hours will count toward the Master's degree, but not toward the bachelor’s degree. A student must be enrolled in at least 12 semester hours of undergraduate classes each semester that he or she is taking Master's credits under this option. Students in the Early Access Program must maintain a 3.0 in all graduate courses. Courses taken at the undergraduate level cannot be retaken for graduate credit. The graduate degree pursued cannot be same field as a student's undergraduate degree. Please fill out the Early Access Application and see Dr. James Hutson, Assistant Dean of Online and Graduate Programs for more information. Dr. Hutson can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
