Accelerated BS to MS Program

Qualified UNCG undergraduate students who are pursuing the B.S. degree in Computer Science may apply for admission to the Accelerated Degree Program. A cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.5 based on at least 30 hours earned at UNCG is required. Applicants must have completed at least 60 semester credits and may not apply for admission to the ADP before the first semester of the junior year.
