1 Year & 1 1/2 Year Plans

Post-baccalaureate students may petition to pursue an accelerated pathway of 1 year or 1 1/2 year completion. They require significant time commitments, and program approval. 

Once accepted into the program, please speak with your advisor to discuss your options and if an accelerated pathway is right for you.
