Accelerated Admission to Graduate School

Accelerated Admission to the Appalachian Studies MA program for ASU students

The Cratis D. Williams School of Graduate Study offers a program entitled "Accelerated Admission: Baccalaureate to Master's," which recruits exceptional undergraduate students currently pursuing a degree at Appalachian State University to enroll in graduate courses during their senior year. These gradaute courses may fulfill both undergraduate and graduate course requirements for both a bachelor's and a graduate degree. Using "Accelerated Admission," a graduate program director may nominate a rising senior (i.e., a student in the second semester of the junior year) or current senior to take graduate coursework during that student's senior year.
