Joint Undergraduate to Masters Program (JUMP)
This program allows a student to take graduate classes early, substituting up to 9 undergraduate hours, and potentially complete a graduate program in less time and for less cost than the traditional graduate program which is completed after the undergraduate degree is awarded.
Undergraduate students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga who are classified as seniors and are within 30 hours of completion of their first bachelor’s degree with an overall GPA of at least 3.4 are eligible to participate in a joint undergraduate to masters program.
Application & Approval
Applications to JUMP may be submitted online when the student has reached junior status and is in the last semester before their final year. With the approval of the Admissions Committee, the student will be admitted to JUMP in the senior year (when they are within 30 hours of completion). Students admitted to JUMP will begin coursework related to the graduate degree when within 30 hours of completing the undergraduate degree.
Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, meeting graduate continuation standards, and completing an application to the Graduate School, the student’s level will be changed from undergraduate to graduate.
Students in JUMP may take up to 9 graduate hours with departmental approval. Individual JUMP programs have the option of limiting the number of graduate hours taken. Graduate coursework successfully completed with a “B” or better will apply to the graduate degree.
Questions about JUMP and the application process can be directed to Mackenzie Clark, Graduate Recruitment Coordinator, at [email protected] or 423-425-5596.
