The Fast-Track Program enables undergraduate students enrolled at UT Dallas to begin work on the MS SCM degree before graduation. Qualified seniors may take graduate courses that will both apply toward the Bachelor of Science degree and satisfy requirements for the MS SCM degree.

Even more significant, successful completion of the undergraduate Fast-Track Program while retaining the minimum GPA of 3.30 and completing OPRE 3360 (or its equivalent) and MATH 1325 calculus requirement provides the opportunity for application and entry into the applicable graduate program in the School of Management without submitting a GMAT or GRE exam score.

Admission to the Fast-Track Program requires that students:

  • Have completed at least 15 hours at UT Dallas
  • Are within 30 hours of graduation
  • Have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.30
  • Have completed all lower-level required courses
  • Have completed OPRE 3360 or its equivalent and the MATH 1325 calculus requirement

To remain in the Fast-Track Program, a student must maintain an overall undergraduate GPA of at least 3.30.

A grade of B- (minus) does not satisfy the graduate requirement.
