Accelerated Degree Program
The Accelerated Bachelor’s to Graduate Degree Program (ADP) is designed to provide a more efficient means to obtain a graduate degree. The program is for students who have a high GPA and want to start taking courses that will count towards both their undergraduate and graduate degrees.
The ADP allows a student to begin accumulating up to twelve credits towards completion of a graduate degree while still enrolled as an undergraduate. Undergraduates participating in this program are given an early decision on their graduate application pending successful completion of the baccalaureate and are allowed to take specified graduate level courses during the spring semester of their junior year and/or during their senior year.
Minimum criteria for admission include a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.5 based on at least 30 hours earned at the UNCG. The undergraduate student may not apply for admission to the ADP before the first semester of the junior year and must have completed at least 60 semester credits. Simultaneous admission to the appropriate graduate degree program through The Graduate School is required.
All students must submit the Request for Accelerated Degree Program to the Graduate School and must simultaneously apply for admission to the appropriate graduate degree program. Interested students should first contact the Director of Graduate Studies (Greg Bell) for further details.
