West Chester University offers accelerated bachelor’s to master’s programs permitting undergraduate students with at least junior standing to take graduate coursework in order to get an early start on the graduate degree. Accelerated programs can expedite the time to completion of the master’s degree. Accelerated programs can also decrease the overall combined credits necessary to complete the undergraduate and graduate degrees since graduate credits may be used to satisfy undergraduate degree requirements. Accelerated programs are an ideal option for students whose desired profession requires a master’s degree to practice and/or those students seeking accelerated completion of graduate-level work. Please note that accelerated offerings are limited to those programs that have elected to provide for such a format.

If you are a current West Chester University Undergraduate student preparing to continue into the master's portion of your accelerated program, please review the Student Guide to the Accelerated Programs Intent to Continue . Should you have any questions, please contact the
