Students interested in a combined/accelerated program must consult with their academic adviser and submit a Combined/Accelerated Degree Program Declaration Form(requires NDUS login). Once approved, a maximum of 15 credits in the master's program can be used to meet the requirements for the bachelor's degree (actual number set by program department). For more information on combined/accelerated degree programs including registration and student account process, see Guidelines for Combined/Accelerated Bachelors to Masters Programs.
