Accelerated Programs

Bachelors and Masters Programs

Accelerated programs are available in many programs for undergraduate students interested in pursuing graduate work within the same area. To be considered for admission to the combined bachelor's/master's degree program, students must have completed at least 75-90 credits in the bachelor's degree program at FIU and meet the admissions criteria for the graduate degree program to which they are applying. Further requirements are listed under the appropriate department in the CASE catalog. Meeting minimum admissions criteria does not guarantee admittance.


Accelerated Juris Doctor (JD) Programs

FIU's College of Law (COL) will consider applications from qualified FIU undergraduate students who meet certain COL admissions criteria in what is coined the "3+3" program.

For further details or to discuss a plan of study for completion of all requirements prior to the undergraduate Senior year, please contact your academic advisor.

Please note that eligibility does not guarantee admission into FIU's College of Law.
