College of Science JUMP

 
The Joint Undergraduate and Master's Program (JUMP) is an excellent opportunity to obtain an undergraduate and graduate degree in a shorter time frame. Typically it takes 4 years for an undergraduate degree and 2 years for a graduate degree. 
 
With the JUMP program, students planning on getting a master's degree can get started while finishing a bachelor's degree. It's a great bargain since, as an undergraduate, you'll take graduate-level courses (and get graduate-level credit) but pay undergraduate class prices. Plus, there is no entrance exam like the GRE, no application fee, and you get to double-count your classes (for BS and MS).
 
For admission to JUMP, students must have a 3.5 overall GPA. For more information, check out the UAH JUMP page
