Fast-track Your Path to a Master’s Degree

Our accelerated degree programs integrate graduate-level courses into your undergraduate curriculum during your senior year to fulfill upper-level electives and build credit toward your master's degree, streamlining your academic journey.

Get Started

Apply to A&M-Commerce and enroll in one of the approved undergraduate programs.

Already enrolled? Skip to step 2!

At the completion of your junior year (90 credit hours), contact your undergraduate advisor for approval to enter the accelerated undergraduate program. Your advisor will submit a form that will be routed to the graduate coordinator for approval.

Once approved, your current undergraduate degree plan will be updated to include graduate coursework that will count toward both your bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

In the final semester of your senior year, submit an online application through Apply Texas to the Master's Accelerated program.

  • You must meet undergraduate GPA requirements at the time of graduate school admission.

Begin taking classes toward your master’s degree.

Approved graduate hours taken as a senior will automatically be applied toward your master's program.

During your final semester of graduate coursework, apply for graduation for both your bachelor's and master's degrees. Your bachelor's and master's degrees will be awarded in the same semester in two ceremonies once you have completed all requirements for both degrees.
