Accelerated Bachelor’s / Master’s Degree Options: Early Admission of Undergraduates into Graduate Programs

The Prescott College curriculum supports accelerated pathways between undergraduate and graduate programs. Undergraduate students are encouraged to begin working with their faculty advisors as early as possible in order to align undergraduate and graduate degree plans. Undergraduate students may register for graduate courses with instructor approval. Qualified undergraduate students may be admitted to begin their graduate studies in their junior or senior year. Early admissions can enable students to complete their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in an accelerated manner. Depending upon the programs involved, this can shorten time to degree completion by a full year. Graduate courses taken while an undergraduate are not guaranteed to transfer in as a part of a graduate program unless the student has received formal early admission to a specific graduate program and is taking graduate courses specified as satisfying the requirements for that program in the College Catalog and in their degree plans.
