Nonprofit Administration and Leadership, Accelerated 4+1 BA/MNAL


Return to Programs Offered Return to: Programs Offered

Through the BA+MNAL program, students may complete a BA in Nonprofit Administration and a Master of Nonprofit Administration and Leadership through the Levin College of Urban Affairs in five years, instead of the six academic years normally required of full-time students. High performing undergraduate students may apply to the 5-year program during the third year of undergraduate study and, if accepted, complete MNAL coursework during the fourth year and a transition term. Students may then complete all remaining MNAL coursework in two semesters of full-time graduate study.

Admission and Requirements


In addition to meeting the admission requirements for the conventional MNAL program, students applying to the 5-year BA+MNAL program must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and submit two letters of recommendation from Cleveland State University faculty. Upon successful completion of the fourth year and transition term, students are awarded the BA in Nonprofit Administration. In order to be admitted to the final year of the BA+MNAL Program, students must complete the BA with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 receive grades of B or better in designated coursework and take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) with scores that meet standard MNAL admission.

For more information and curriculum plans, please consult the Levin College Office of Student Services, at 216-687-3884.

Students who are accepted for an accelerated 4+1 program may apply or transfer a maximum of 12 graduate credit hours taken while an undergraduate. No additional graduate credit hours taken as an undergraduate may be applied or transferred to the graduate record.
