BS Computational Mathematical Sciences + MA Mathematics
Computational Mathematical Sciences (BS)
BS Mathematics + MA Mathematics
BS Actuarial Science + MS Actuarial Science
Actuarial Science (BS)
BS Mathematics (Statistics) + MS Statistics
Mathematics (Statistics) (BS)
Students interested in the 4+1 program need to complete the following steps.
Q: When is the latest that I can apply?
A: The answer can depend on several factors. However, a general rule of thumb is to have the graduate application submitted by July 1st of the year that you intend to start sharing coursework.
Q: Can I start in a spring semester?
A: Our course sequences are developed to begin in the fall semester
Q: I already have some graduate level credit before I applied. Can I use it toward my graduate degree in this program?
A: It can vary on the individual circumstance. During your meeting with the graduate office in our school, we will discuss your current credits and how/if they can apply.
Q: Can I use undergraduate financial aid while I am in this program?
A: Yes. However, once you complete your undergraduate degree, your eligibility changes. We encourage you to speak with financial aid regarding options for completing the program.
Q: How does the course sharing work?
A: Students are allowed to share 12 hours of graduate level coursework and have it applied toward the undergraduate and graduate degrees. These 12 hours will be completed in the final year of your undergraduate degree, leaving one year remaining afterwards to complete the Master’s program.
