Combined/Accelerated Degree Programs of Study

NDSU offers combined/accelerated degree programs for highly-qualified students to earn both a bachelor's and master's degree in a cost-effective, quality, and timely manner. The following disciplines currently are available as combined/accelerated programs:

Coatings & Polymeric Materials (M.S. or Ph.D.)

¹ In addition to the above, students who earn an undergraduate minor in Coatings & Polymeric Materials as part of their primary degree program (most commonly Chemistry or Mechanical Engineering), may be eligible for the combined/accelerated M.S. or Ph.D. program in Coatings & Polymeric Materials.

Students interested in a combined/accelerated program must consult with their academic adviser and submit a Petition to Apply to a Combined/Accelerated Degree Program. Once approved, students may apply a set number of courses/credits to both the baccalaureate and master’s degrees in their chosen discipline. A graduate academic record will be activated once the student is offered early admission to the Graduate School. Students must register for their undergraduate courses on their undergraduate record and graduate courses on their graduate record in Campus Connection. Prior to the baccalaureate degree being posted, the appropriate graduate courses will be internally transferred and applied to the undergraduate academic record for inclusion in degree credit totals. Students pay tuition/fees according to the level of enrolled courses in a given term. For more information on combined/accelerated degree programs, see Guidelines for Combined/Accelerated Bachelors to Masters Programs.
