Information for Current Fast Track Participants
If you wish to continue your graduate education at UTEP after you complete your bachelor's degree, contact your Fast Track Advisor for information specific to your program.
Please note that upon completion of the Bachelor's degree, you must complete all pending admission requirements for formal admission to the graduate program.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Tuition will be based on the level of the course, not the level of the student. Financial aid may be adjusted.
- Exceptions to these guidelines will be handled through an appeal process established by the participating graduate program.
