CCPS Fast Track Programs

Overview

The Collins College of Professional Studies offers fast track programs (pathways/dual degrees) allowing undergraduate students to complete graduate-level coursework. Undergraduate students pursuing a pathway may apply up to 12 credits of graduate course work as part of their undergraduate degrees, upon consultation with an advisor. Assuming good academic standing, matriculation into the appropriate graduate program is seamless upon completion of the undergraduate degree. Fast Track students must immediately matriculate into the indicated master’s program upon completing the bachelor’s degree. (Should a student decide to leave SJU and return, these graduate credits will not apply to the graduate degree)

Students in fast track programs receive their bachelor’s degrees once the undergraduate requirements are completed and receive their master’s degrees once the graduate requirements are completed.
