1.      By the start of the student’s Accelerated status, they must have either:

- 75 credit hours earned and an overall BGSU GPA of at least 3.2[1], or

- 90 credit hours earned and an overall BGSU GPA of at least 3.0;

2.      A completed Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Program Application;

Accelerated ECET to MTM-ENGT Program Plan  

Students enrolled in the Accelerated ECET to MTM-ENGT should follow the following course schedule for planning out graduate work that begins while still enrolled as an undergraduate student, followed by the courses taken when fully enrolled as a graduate student in the MTM-ENGT program.  In order to complete this plan in an accelerated format, it is strongly recommended that students choose the Plan II option (non-thesis).  Students who choose the thesis option should expect the completion of their master’s degree program to take longer than an additional extra (5th) year. 

Undergraduate Accelerated Status (limited to 9 credits maximum)

Courses that may be taken while an undergraduate student with Undergraduate Accelerated Status that will overlap between the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees:
