Bachelor's to Master's Program Benefits
  • Students in this program receive a scholarship during the Master's coursework to cover the difference between undergraduate and graduate tuition rates.
  • A typical Master's program takes 30 credits to complete, but the Bachelor's to Master's degrees require between 21-24 credits.
  • Many students can begin their graduate coursework while still completing the bachelor's degree.
  • Students are not required to take the GRE or pay an application fee.

Students are encouraged to enroll in the program as early as possible, preferably during their junior year. Undergraduate students should contact their undergraduate academic advisor to complete the necessary paperwork and learn next steps for the bachelor-to-master's degree.
