As a progressive degree program student, you will be subject to undergraduate academic progress standards while in undergraduate status and master’s academic progress while in graduate status. In most cases, you will be classified as an undergraduate student for the first eight semesters of college enrollment. In the ninth semester (start of fifth year), you will be changed to graduate status.
While classified as a graduate student, you will be charged the graduate tuition rate appropriate for the master’s degree you are pursuing, and your enrollment status (full-time, part-time) will be determined by graduate standards.
If you receive a research assistant or teaching assistant award before completing eight semesters, you will be changed to graduate status.
The bachelor’s degree may be awarded separately, but the master’s degree will not be awarded before the undergraduate degree.
