Step Two: Contact your undergraduate advisor to determine and confirm eligibility for program
Step Three: Begin the Preliminary Plan of Study (PPOS) - with your undergraduate advisor
Step Four: Meet with the graduate advisor to complete the PPOS
Step Five: Apply to the master's program. Accelerated 4+1 applicants must submit an online

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.
