The Graduate College at Bowling Green State University has several graduate programs that permit qualified undergraduate students who are earning their bachelor’s degree at BGSU to apply to an Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s program.  Participating in an Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s program provides students with the opportunity to complete both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in an efficient manner. 

Undergraduate students who apply to and have been accepted into an Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's program will be coded as Undergraduate Accelerated Students until they have completed their Bachelor’s degree. While an Undergraduate Accelerated Student, they may take up to nine (9) credit hours of graduate credit.  A maximum of nine (9) graduate credit hours may be overlapped between both the bachelor’s and the master’s degrees.  These overlapped credits can count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees (according to the curriculum of each program). 

See the Graduate College's Accelerated Bachelor's to Master's Program Policy for more detailed information on admissions requirements, student status, credit hour policies, tuition, financial aid, program withdrawal, and program dismissal.

Please note: These policies pertain to students who wish to officially work toward both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree at BGSU simultaneously. Students who wish to take graduate level courses during their senior year but not officially enroll in a Master’s degree program may apply to do so by earning Advanced Undergraduate Status (AUS). AUS guidelines can be found on the Graduate College Documents and Forms website.

While not all programs have an accelerated plan, the following master’s degrees can be completed in an accelerated format. Click on the name of the program for their Accelerated Program Plan (check sheet), including their admissions criteria.
