Accelerated Bachelors-Masters Program Plan

Get credits for your bachelor's and master's degree with this new program for juniors and seniors!

Eligibility: Undergraduate students in participating degree programs are eligible to apply for approval of an accelerated graduate education plan if they have completed at least 90 hours of undergraduate course work (or are enrolled in the semester when they will do so) and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.4. This new program allows participants to double count up to 9 credit hours to a CCU bachelor's degree and a CCU master's degree. Although only available after 90 credits have been earned and a GPA of at least a 3.4, freshman and sophmores should keep this in mind if interested in multiple degrees. 

This is the program for you if:

  1. You plan to complete both your bachelor's and master's degrees at CCU. Becausethe dual credit courses will be listed on your undergraduate transcript, it is not guaranteed that other universities will accept them for graduate credit. 
  2. You have at least a 3.4 cumulative GPA and 90 earned credits.
  3. Your anticipated total combined undergraudate and graduate credits for both degrees, including up to 9 credits of dual degree courses, is at least 150 credits. 

The Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Program Plan should be accessed, filled out completely and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies, Baxley Hall 223.
