Accelerated Master's Platform

Accelerated Master’s Platform

Get started on a graduate degree while still an undergraduate! The Accelerated Master’s Platform allows students to apply to a graduate program at the end of their junior year and, if accepted, matriculate into the master’s program immediately after graduation. Students admitted into AMP have the benefit of paying undergraduate tuition fees for graduate level coursework (excludes ecampus courses, charged graduate tuition rates) while in the program and accelerating the timeline for completing a master’s degree.

Once accepted into AMP, students do not need to reapply to the master’s degree and automatically transition into Graduate School after completing undergraduate degree (must maintain 3.0 GPA per OSU’ Graduate School requirements).

Successful applicants are allowed to apply a maximum of 22 credits (taken for a letter grade and not including blanket-numbered courses) to both their undergraduate and master’s degrees.

Admission Requirements:

  • Completion of 105 credits toward undergraduate degree program.
  •  A minimum of 3.25 GPA in current degree. 
  • Transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended.
  • MS AMP requires 2 letters of recommendation- 1 LOR from EECS faculty, 1 LOR from EECS Graduate Advisor.
