That's not necessarily automatically the case. See the seccession of Greenland and Denmark, where Greenland CHOSE to step out of the EU while Demark stayed in. Now, granted, I don't know the legal background of all of that back then, and the laws have probably changed since then but I imagine that if, say, Scotland, the Basque country or Catalonia were to become independant and would want to stay/join in the EU, they'd get a "fast track" at least, seeing as a lot of the rules and regulations that aspiring members must implement are already in place.
