Accelerated Masters Program for the USNA


This is an accelerated graduate program for students from the US Naval Academy (USNA) who are receiving a BS degree in Nuclear Engineering to enroll in the Masters of Engineering (MENG) degree in the Nuclear Engineering Program at Virginia Tech during the Spring Semester of the academic year.

Undergraduate students from USNA must be accepted into the program prior to the spring semester of the academic year. Students qualifying for the program must be in the last 12 months of their undergraduate degree and are expected to complete their degree by the end of the spring semester of the academic year. Once completion of the undergraduate degree has been verified, students accepted into this accelerated program will be classified as regular graduate students. Students will take 10 credits of graded coursework during the spring semester that may be used towards meeting the MS degree requirement. Students will not double count any courses for the undergraduate USNA and graduate VT degrees. Students admitted in the program must have a GPA of 3.0 or better. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better during their first semester (spring semester of the academic year) to be accepted as regular graduate students upon their graduation from USNA. Courses must not be taken pass-fail if a graded option is available.
