Fast Track Combined Bachelor's/Master's Programs

Application Requirements

The Fast Track Combined Bachelor's/Master's Programs enables outstanding undergraduate UTEP students to receive dual undergraduate and graduate credit for up to 15 hours of UTEP graduate course work as determined by participating master's and doctoral programs. Interested students must:

  • Have successfully completed at least 90 hours of undergraduate coursework toward their degree with a minimum of 24 of those hours at UTEP.
  • Have and maintain a minimum 3.30 undergraduate GPA.
  • Satisfy additional requirements set by participating graduate programs.

Instructions for first-time applicants to the Fast Track Combined Bachelor's/Master's Programs:

Complete this form and obtain all required signatures. Apply to the graduate program of your choice using the online graduate admission application located on the Graduate School website. Submit a scanned copy of this completed form with the graduate school application.

Please note that upon completion of the Bachelor's degree, you must complete all pending admission requirements for formal admission to the graduate program.

Notes:

    1. Each participating undergraduate academic program will determine which 5000 level courses will count toward the undergraduate degree. The Graduate School will maintain an inventory of all approved courses.
    2. Students must be advised each semester at the departmental level by both the undergraduate and graduate advisors and cleared for registration in graduate courses by the Graduate School.
    3. Students must earn a B or better in the graduate course to count as graduate credit. The earned grade will first appear on the undergraduate transcript. If the grade is a C, it will not count toward the graduate degree but will still count toward the undergraduate degree. Upon admission into the Graduate School, the earned credit will appear on the graduate transcript.
    4. Tuition will be based on the level of the course, not the level of the student. Financial aid may be adjusted.
    5. Exceptions to these guidelines will be handled through an appeal process established by the participating graduate program.
