The accelerated 3+2 program allows students the opportunity to complete both an undergraduate and graduate degree in less time and/or fewer hours that a traditional route. Central Methodist University students who need 29 or fewer credit hours to complete all of the requirements of the exercise science program and have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.25 at the time of admission may be considered for accelerated graduate admission as a graduate student in the Master of Science in Athletic Training program. Students in the 3+2 program will be undergraduate students (with associated financial aid) through the spring semester of their fourth year. Undergraduate tuition will apply to the 7 graduate courses taken during the summer, fall, and spring terms of the fourth year. Graduate tuition will apply to the remaining graduate courses in the fourth year.
NOTE: Federal regulations permit undergraduate students to receive financial assistance only for their current degree program. Students are strongly encouraged to contact Central Methodist University Office of Financial Aid to find out how their financial aid amount would be adjusted. University scholarship, tuition waivers, athletic certification, and veteran’s benefits may also be impacted.
