4+1 Undergraduate to M.H.A.

The 4+1 Undergraduate to MHA program allows undergraduate students in business (all majors) with at least 60 undergraduate credit hours and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale to take graduate coursework in the MHA program, which will not only count towards fulfilling their undergraduate degree requirements, but will also count toward the completion of the MHA program. Qualified students may take up to 12 credit hours (4 courses) from the MHA curriculum, which will reduce the time necessary to complete the graduate degree from two years to as little as one year following the completion of the undergraduate degree (see table below). Students must be enrolled in at least 12 semester credit hours combined of undergraduate and graduate classes each semester that he or she is taking MHA credits under this option.

The admission criteria for participation in the 4+1 program are as follows:

  • Students must have completed 60 undergraduate credit hours toward their baccalaureate degree.
  • Students must maintain a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale while taking MHA courses.
