Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

This Fast Track program allows undergraduate students to waive up to two designated graduate courses from the Master of Science in Accountancy program with successful completion of (at least a “B”) the equivalent undergraduate courses.


Admissions Requirements

Qualified students in the undergraduate program who have completed the following five (5) required prerequisite courses with a B- or better are eligible for the Fast Track:

Students who receive a “B” in the following courses will be able to have up to six credits waived in the graduate program for the equivalent courses.

Graduate courses waived consist of the following:

Minimum Grade

To be eligible for admission to the Fast Track, students must have a Grade Point Average (GPA of 2.5 or better.)



Students will first graduate with a Bachelor of Science in either General Studies or Business Administration upon completing all of their program requirements.

During the final semester of study, the student will then apply to the Master of Accountancy program and upon acceptance; with all admission requirements met, the first two graduate courses may be waived, provided a grade of “B” was earned in the two equivalent undergraduate courses.

In this case, instead of a curricular requirement of thirty six (36) hours/twelve (12) courses, the curricular requirement after the Fast Track would be thirty (30) hours/ten (10) courses. 

Students who elect to enroll in two courses per each of the five scheduled terms can complete their graduate degree in one year.
