Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: New College

This program is not currently accepting students.

The Department of Learning Technologies offers a grad track pathway for existing UNT undergraduate students with a major in applied technology and performance improvement. In this grad track pathway, students can take a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate courses while completing the BAAS degree. These credits count first toward the BAAS, then are transferred to the MS degree. Prior to registering for the specified graduate courses, the student must have been admitted to the grad track pathway and obtained approvals from the appropriate undergraduate and graduate advisors.

Admissions criteria and program policies

  1. Students should be a major in the UNT applied technology and performance improvement BAAS program.
  2. A student may apply for the grad track pathway during his/her junior year (and must have completed at least 75 credit hours at the time of application to the grad track).
  3. Minimum of 3.0 cumulative GPA required at the time of application submission.
  4. The student will provide two recommendation forms from LTEC faculty members who can evaluate the student’s ability to complete graduate level work.
  5. The application will be reviewed by both the LTEC undergraduate and graduate advisors.
  6. Once approved by the LTEC advisors, the student must apply to Toulouse Graduate School within the first semester of the senior year.
  7. After completing at least 90 credit hours, the student can start taking the graduate courses to satisfy a portion of an Area of Emphasis (Support Courses) as part of the Professional Development component for the BAAS degree requirement.
  8. Students admitted to the grad track pathway will be admitted into the MS program on a conditional basis. Once the student has satisfied all course work for the BAAS degree and maintained a 3.0 or higher GPA on the specified graduate courses, he/she will be fully admitted to the MS program. 
  9. Undergraduate students who have been accepted to a grad track option should complete all of their bachelor’s degree requirements and graduate within 12 months of the first day of the semester in which they start taking graduate courses, or enrollment in graduate level course work will be suspended.
  10. The student must enroll in graduate school in the next long semester after finishing his/her BAAS degree and should take the remaining graduate courses in the following 12 months to complete his/her MS degree. If the student does not enroll in graduate school in the next long semester after finishing his/her BAAS degree, those graduate course credit hours taken as part of the grad track pathway will not be applied to the MS degree even if the student comes back for graduate school in the future.
