Concurrent Bachelor’s/Master’s (BAMA) Program

Students pursuing a concurrent bachelors/master’s degree will be automatically changed to graduate status after the completion of 130 credit hours (or 145 credit hours for a student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science). The Title IV Higher Education regulations require that an institution determine when a student has progressed from undergraduate to graduate status.

The minimum completion of 130 credit hours includes credits taken towards academic load from a student’s undergraduate work (which includes classes graded with an I or IP, as well as in-progress units) and transfer units (including AP credit).

Graduate students are assessed graduate tuition rates and if receiving financial aid are considered “independent” once reaching graduate status.

To appeal the automatic change to graduate status, you must submit the Concurrent Bachelor Appeal Form to the Office of the Registrar with the following additional information:

    • Copy of your Transcript (click here to order a transcript)
    • Documentation from both your undergraduate, as well as graduate advisors, stating how many hours remain in each program
    • Expected date of graduation from your graduate advisor. 
    • A letter detailing the extenuating reason based on which you are requesting an exception to the change to graduate status in pursuit of your combined bachelors/masters program, as well as any documentation that may support your request.

Appeals will only be approved for extenuating circumstances that result in the student’s inability to make progress towards a degree.

No exceptions can be made for financial reasons (e.g. loss of aid, higher graduate tuition rates, etc.)
