CCPS Fast Track Programs

Overview

The Collins College of Professional Studies offers fast track programs (pathways/dual degrees) that allow undergraduate students to complete graduate-level coursework. Undergraduate students pursuing a fast track may apply up to 12-15 credits (approximately 40%) 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.


ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

To be eligible for applying to a CCPS Fast Track program, students must:

  • Be enrolled in the appropriate undergraduate major
  • Have completed at least 60 credits with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
  • Have completed at least 12 credits in the major with a minimum GPA of 3.5 except for the following programs:
    • International Hospitality and Homeland Security and Criminal Justice Leadership pathway requires major GPAs of 3.20.
    • Sport Management pathways requires major GPAs of 3.25
    • Division of Mass Communications Pathways (ICM, ADVI) require major GPAs of 3.0.
