Accelerated Program Options

 

The BS/MS program option permits qualified NJIT undergraduate students to earn credits toward a graduate degree. To qualify, students must have a cumulative GPA at or above 3.0 and can take six (6) credits of graduate course work in their senior year. They can take nine (9) credits if their GPA is at or above 3.5. These credits may then be counted towards both the bachelor and master's degree at NJIT.

The BS/PhD program option requires a cumulative GPA at or above a 3.5. 

Other combinations of baccalaureate and master's / doctoral degree programs are also available. 

Students will still need to submit a separate application through Graduate Admissions for admittance into a graduate program. 

Students are encouraged to pursue graduate study immediately following the completion of the bachelor's degree. However, courses approved for a BS/MS option can be applied to a graduate degree up to two (2) years after completing the bachelor's degree.
