BS/MS Admissions Process

It is imperative that once in the BS/MS program the student complete both degrees at the same time. If during the program the student decides to complete the undergraduate degree before the graduate degree, this will have billing ramifications and the student will need to withdraw from the dual degree program by sending an e-mail to his or her advisor. Furthermore, if the student wishes to continue graduate level courses, he/she would need to formally apply to the graduate program through graduate admissions.

Students applying to the CCI BSMS program must:

  1. Complete the BS/MS application found on the Office of Graduate Studies website under 'Accelerated Degree Programs.'
  2. Meet with an academic advisor to determine a "Plan of Study." Note: CCI policy states that students can not register for more than 20 credits per term unless they are a graduating senior.
  3. Obtain a letter of recommendation from at least one full-time CCI faculty member.
  4. Have completed foundation courses in their degree program by the end of the term in which application is made.
