It is strongly recommended that any student considering a 4+1 program in the New College attend one of our information sessions. After attending an information session, interested students should first meet with the graduate program director to determine if the 4+1 program matches their research and professional interests. If it is a good a good fit, the student should schedule a meeting with their undergraduate academic advisor to determine if their schedule is flexible enough to share credits. The student and undergraduate advisor should complete the 4+1 Checklist and Program Qualification Form and submit it to the Graduate Program Advisor at the time of application.
Accelerated 4+1 applicants must submit an online application to ASU Graduate Admissions including all requirements outlined by ASU Degree Search. The GRE is not required for any 4+1 applicants.
Students will be considered undergraduates until all bachelor's program requirements have been completed. In consultation with the faculty advisor, the student will develop an integrated plan of study (iPOS) leading to the dual degrees. After being admitted to the 4+1 program, a student must be registered for a minimum of one shared course during each remaining undergraduate semester. It is important for all students to acquaint themselves with all regulations, to be informed throughout their college careers, and to be responsible for completing all requirements.
