Accelerated Bac to Masters

Accelerated Bachelor to Masters Programs

Accelerated bachelor to masters degree programs enable students to obtain both a bachelor and master degree within five years. Interested students apply to the undergraduate program in the traditional manner.

Accelerated Programs: Transitioning to Graduate Studies

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.

To be considered for admission to the related graduate portion of an accelerated program, students must submit:

  • A Graduate School application for admission to the related graduate program of study
  • Test scores from the appropriate graduate aptitude test (as required by the related graduate program)
  •  Letters of reference, résumé or other additional supplemental documents (as required by the related graduate program)

For more information regarding the admissions process to a graduate program, please view Application Requirements at the UNF Graduate School website.
