The advanced standing option of the Accelerated Master’s Program is for Illinois Tech undergraduate students who have fewer than 12 credit hours remaining until graduation, or alumni who have graduated within the past three years. Choose from either a pre-determined pairing of bachelor’s and master’s degrees, or work with your adviser to select your own pairing that matches your interests.
Those participating in the advanced standing option will have 9 credits from their undergraduate degree apply to their graduate program, reducing the time required to complete the graduate program by one semester.
To participate in advanced standing, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Must meet established graduate admission standards
- Must have demonstrated evidence of 9 sharable credit hours from your Illinois Tech undergraduate transcript
Note: Stuart School of Business graduate programs do not participate in the advanced standing option
