Bachelor's/Master's programs are designed to enhance the opportunities for advanced training for ISU’s most talented undergraduates. Admission to these programs must be highly competitive and will depend upon a positive review of credentials by the program’s admission’s committee. Accordingly, the admission requirements for these programs are higher than those required if the master’s degree were pursued entirely after the receipt of the bachelor’s degree.
Students not eligible for the accelerated program may apply to the master’s degree program through the regular admissions process.
A student should apply for admission to the program between January 15 and March 15 of his/her junior year by submitting the department required documents.
If an undergraduate has enough credits to graduate in three years, the student must apply between January 15 and March 15 of the second undergraduate year. Programs with students who fall into this category must work closely with the Graduate School on issues of timing and structure.
Students will receive conditional admission, pending the review of their grades at the conclusion of the semester of application.
Once admitted to the Accelerated Master’s Degree program, students are required to meet the academic standing requirements of the Graduate School. As long as a student remains in good standing, they will automatically be admitted as a graduate student in that program.
