AGRADE - Accelerated Graduate Enrollment
The Mike Ilitch School of Business has established an accelerated combined undergraduate and graduate program ('AGRADE') whereby qualified students in the Mike Ilitch School of Business may enroll simultaneously in undergraduate and graduate courses of the School. A maximum of twelve credits may be applied towards both undergraduate and graduate degrees in a student's major field if the major department is an AGRADE participant. Those who elect the 'AGRADE' program may expect to complete the Bachelor's and Master's degrees in five years of full-time study.
Eligibility: 'AGRADE' applicants must have an overall g.p.a. of 3.5 through their junior year. Applicants are also expected to have performed at a superior level in their major, as determined by the major department and reflected in a g.p.a. in the major of at least 3.6 at the time of application.
Application: A student seeking 'AGRADE' status should present to the Mike Ilitch School of Business Graduate Programs Office all of the materials which that department requires for normal graduate admission, EXCEPT for the GMAT or Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Specific graduate admission requirements can be found in this bulletin or obtained from the Graduate Programs Office of the Mike Ilitch School of Business at 313-577-4511.
The earliest date by which a student may apply for the 'AGRADE' program is during the semester in which he/she completes ninety credits toward the undergraduate degree.
AGRADE Credits: Students may elect a minimum of three and a maximum of twelve 'AGRADE' credits. These will be used to complete the baccalaureate degree as well as to serve as the beginning of graduate study. Upon formal admission to a master's program, 'AGRADE' credits are transferred as if they were graduate credits transferred from a graduate program at another university. The remaining graduate credits required for the master's degree will be earned in the conventional manner following formal admission to the graduate program.
