The goal of the Accelerated Program in the Department of Agricultural & Biological Engineering (ABE) is to enable highly qualified students to earn up to 12 hours of graduate course credit.
Students who complete approved graduate level courses (6000-level) will receive dual credit for the equivalent undergraduate course (4000-level). Students must apply and be admitted to an Accelerated Program prior to enrolling in the graduate level classes.
See the MSU Graduate Bulletin for rules governing this program for more information on accelerated programs in the university.

Once a student has been accepted into the Accelerated Program, he/she is eligible to enroll in graduate level courses. To do so, complete the Undergraduate Enrollment in Accelerated Program Form and submit to your advisor before the first day of classes.

Admission is competitive and is contingent on availability of a suitable project and faculty advisor.
