Plus-One Program (only available to matriculated UMass Lowell undergraduates)

The Plus-One Program option offered by the Manning School of Business is an accelerated program offered to encourage outstanding undergraduate students in engineering, science and business to continue study at the graduate level. Undergraduate students in these majors (i.e., science, engineering or business), who have a GPA of 3.00 or better at the end of their junior year must apply for this program before they complete their undergraduate graduation requirements. Students who plan to apply to this program must meet with the M.S. program advisor by their junior year to discuss any additional course requirements. 

General eligibility guidelines for admission to a UMass Lowell Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Programs can be found in the UMass Lowell online catalog. New students are admitted to the MSITE program on a rolling basis in the fall and spring.
