If you enroll in a combined program you must meet the academic requirements and standards for both the bachelor’s and master’s program, at a minimum. Most combined programs require higher grade point averages than normal for admission to the graduate program. To ensure that you meet requirements for both programs you should meet with your advisors as early as possible after you are admitted to develop your program of study.
Before you start your graduate year, you will be evaluated to confirm that you are qualified, prepared and committed to the graduate program. Formal admission to the program may be deferred if you have not met all prerequisite requirements.
If either your undergraduate performance does not meet the established standards or if you are no longer interested in the program, you will be transferred out. Each school has policies and processes for students in this situation. If you have questions, check with the school you’ve been admitted to.
