MPS Fast Track Program

Fast Track

What is the Fast Track program?

The Master's of Professional Studies (MPS) Fast Track program will allow eligible undergraduates to enroll for up to six (6) hours of graduate courses prior to formal admission to the MPS program. The MPS Fast Track program is open to all undergraduate majors, and the courses will be taken during the student’s junior/senior year and can be used to satisfy both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements.  Participation does not change requirements for either the undergraduate or graduate programs of study.  The MPS Fast Track program applies to all MPS concentrations.

Once admitted to the MPS Fast Track program, the student will be allowed to enroll in appropriate graduate courses in the junior or senior year with the consent of the student’s undergraduate advisor and the Director of the MPS program.  Courses completed at the Graduate Level are only guaranteed to apply to the completion of the MPS graduate degree program.  The student must earn a minimum grade of “B” in the graduate courses in order to apply them to the MPS program of study and to continue in the Fast-track program.  

Admissions Requirements:

  • Fast Track applicant must be earning a baccalaureate degree at Tennessee Tech University and completed at least 90 hours of credit;
  • Overall undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better;
  • GPA of 3.25 in undergraduate major;
  • Recommendation from the student’s undergraduate advisor

Note:  In addition to the requirements for admission to the MPS Fast Track program, all requirements for admission to the graduate program must also be met upon graduation.  Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the graduate program.
