Accelerated Master's Programs

Students applying to an Accelerated Path Master’s Program must:

  • Be a currently enrolled Fontbonne University student
  • Have completed at least 60 credit hours (including CIS 210 , CIS 330 , MTH 120 and MTH 150  with a grade of B or higher in each of these four courses.)
  • Have at least one full semester an undergraduate remaining
  • Possess a minimum Fontbonne cumulative GPA of 3.25

Admission Requirements

Students applying for admission to a master’s program through the Accelerated Option submit an Accelerated Master’s Program Application, which must be approved by the graduate program director, department chair and college dean. Application can be made as early as the first semester of the junior year, but typically in the third semester prior to completion of the undergraduate degree and with at least one full semester remaining at the time of application. Students must have completed at least 12 credit hours in the undergraduate major by the time they are admitted into an Accelerated Path. Undergraduate students admitted to a master’s program through an Accelerated Path must maintain

  • a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and
  • a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher in all of their CIS courses.

Degree and Tuititon Policies

Once admitted to a master’s program through the Accelerated Path, students may take up to a maximum of 9 credit hours of graduate coursework (as listed below the major requirements) and have those hours count toward both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Students will be charged at the undergraduate rate and retain eligibility for undergraduate scholarships. For each semester in which they take courses for both undergraduate and graduate credit, students must complete a “mixed credit” registration form that is approved by the graduate program director, department chair and college dean. Students taking courses for graduate credit must adhere to all relevant graduate policies.

Students admitted to an Accelerated Path Master’s Program must meet all graduate program admission requirements at the time they complete the baccalaureate degree and must meet all degree completion requirements of the graduate program.
