Criminal Justice, M.S., Early Entry


Exceptional undergraduate students at UNC Charlotte may apply to this Early Entry Program to begin work toward a graduate degree before completion of the baccalaureate degree.  

Admission Requirements

  • Completion of at least 75 undergraduate credit hours (although it is expected that close to 90 credit hours will have been earned by the time the first graduate course is taken)
  • Minimum 3.2 overall undergraduate GPA
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Completed online application at mygradschool.uncc.edu

Continued Enrollment Requirements

  • Maintain a minimum 3.0 overall undergraduate GPA
