Combined B.S./M.S. Program Information

Admission Requirements

Students are eligible to apply for the combined bachelors/masters degree program during the first semester of their junior year (or 64-80 hours earned) and can begin taking graduate courses during the second semester of the junior year (or after 80 hours earned). They also must have completed half of the departmental hours required for the major.

Provisional Admission: Students may be admitted on a provisional basis to a specific combined program anytime during their academic career at Miami, from the time they are admitted for undergraduate admission.

Upon earning a minimum of 64 credit hours and having a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or greater, students may apply for admission to the combined program. Regular time-limits for completing the master’s degree apply to students in a combined program.

Student Classification and Graduation

Students in a combined program will remain undergraduates until they apply for graduation or submit a request to the Graduate School to have their classification changed from undergraduate to graduate. Students must have completed a minimum of 128 hours to be classified as a graduate student. Students may receive their bachelor's degree prior to completing their master's degree. Upon receiving the bachelor's degree, students will automatically be classified as graduate students. Students receiving the bachelor's degree prior to completing the master's degree can count up to nine hours of graduate course work toward their bachelor's degree. Those hours can also count toward the completion of their master's degree, as indicated above.

Students may withdraw from the combined program by completing a withdrawal form at the Graduate School. The student must note on the withdrawal form that he/she is withdrawing only from the combined program and wishes to retain their status in the undergraduate program.
