Q: When applying for admission to the master’s program, what semester should I apply for?
A: You should submit a graduate application for the semester immediately following your undergraduate degree completion. Example: If you are graduating in the Spring Semester, you should submit an application for Fall.
Q: I want to find out more information about Grad Track Pathways. Who do I contact?
A: Each department has a specified faculty member overseeing their Grad Track Pathway(s). Please contact the department for more information.
Q: I want to take some time off between my undergraduate degree and graduate degree. Can I do that?
A: No, your enrollment into the master's program must directly follow the semester in which your bachelor's degree is awarded.
Q: Is the Grad Track Pathway the same as dual enrollment?
A: No, the Grad Track Pathway is an accelerated program that allows you to transfer up to nine hours of designated coursework (as determined by requirements of each program) from your undergraduate degree to a specified master’s program. Dual Enrollment is a separate program that allows enrolled S&T undergraduates to take graduate level coursework for graduate credit at the undergraduate tuition rate. To participate in dual enrollment you must submit an application for admission. Once admitted, you must designated which courses will be taken for graduate credit by submitting a form to the Registrar’s Office within the first two weeks of class. Courses taken for graduate credit cannot be applied toward your undergraduate degree.
