Joint Undergraduate to Masters Program (JUMP)


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 3.25 are eligible to participate in a joint undergraduate to masters program. Please refer to the specific JUMP program requirements as some GPA requirements are higher. This Joint Undergraduate to Masters Program allows a student to take graduate classes early 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. 

Find more information in Academic Regulations .

Specific JUMP Requirements


Undergraduate students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) who are within 30 hours of completion of their first bachelor’s degree and have an overall GPA of at least 3.4 are eligible to participate in the combined undergraduate to graduate programs. A combined undergraduate to graduate program allows a student to gain early admission to and potentially complete a graduate program in less time and for less money than required of traditional graduate students.  Application to the combined undergraduate to graduate program and the Graduate School, including all program specific requirements, may be submitted for review during a student’s junior year.  With the approval of the program coordinator, department head, the dean of the college housing the graduate program, and the dean of the Graduate School, the student will be admitted to the program as a rising senior, after completion of 90 credit hours.  With the permission of the program coordinator and department head, a student may enroll in up to a total of 9 hours of graduate course work.  Programs may limit the number of graduate credit hours taken; refer to specific information in the program section of this catalog.  Undergraduate students must complete all undergraduate major requirements. All graduate courses for which a grade of B or better is earned may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs, provided the academic program completes and submits a course substitution for the graduate hours. Subsequent admission to the graduate program as a regular graduate student will require completion of the undergraduate degree, an application to Graduate School, and approval of the program coordinator, department head and dean of the Graduate School.

Graduate courses eligible to apply to both degree programs:

CPSC 5100 - Theory of Computer Programming Language
CPSC 5590 - Advanced Computer Networks
CPSC 5700 - Advanced Computer Architecture
