Accelerated Bac to Masters

Accelerated Bachelor to Masters Programs

UNF provides academically qualified undergraduate students with the opportunity to complete the requirements for both the bachelor’s and master's degrees at an accelerated pace. Accelerated tracks allow students to get a head start on their graduate education by taking graduate courses during their junior and senior undergraduate years. In most programs, up to 12 credit hours of graduate work also count toward a baccalaureate degree, thus reducing the time it takes to get both degrees.

Accelerated Programs: Transitioning to Graduate Studies

Interested students must meet with the undergraduate and graduate program advisors regarding program requirements and procedures, and to establish a clear curricular pathway to both degrees. Further, interested students are required to consult with Financial Aid to determine any potential ramification during the change from undergraduate to graduate standing.

Until the baccalaureate degree requirements are completed, the student is fully considered to be an undergraduate student. Entry into the graduate program requires separate application. Students admitted to the graduate program will remain undergraduate status but will have the opportunity to start taking graduate level courses that will count towards the completion of their Bachelor’s degree and will also be applied for credit towards their Master’s degree.
 
Admission into an accelerated program at the undergraduate level does not guarantee admission into the related graduate program. Students enrolled in an accelerated program must fulfill the admissions requirements for the graduate portion of their program prior to the start of the student’s final undergraduate semester.
