Accelerated Learning

Save time and money by beginning graduate school before you finish your bachelor’s degree.

If you qualify, you may take up to 9 graduate credits that apply to both your bachelor’s degree and your master’s degree. This allows you to save about a semester of time and money in earning both degrees.

You can take advantage of this option only if you are continuously enrolled at the University of Baltimore for the entirety of your undergraduate and graduate education (that is, you can’t take advantage of this option and then take a year off before finishing the rest of your graduate degree).

What you need to qualify:

  • a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or better
  • to continue in the accelerated option, you have to maintain a 3.50 GPA or better in your undergraduate coursework and a 3.00 GPA or better in your graduate coursework.

You must apply to the graduate program by the published deadline. For more detailed information, see the UB Undergraduate Catalog and consult with your academic adviser.
