Undergraduate students in the BS/MS program are allowed to take up to 12 credit hours of graduate-level courses while still classified as an undergraduate student to be used in partial satisfaction of the requirements for the graduate degree.
Students can apply to be pre-screened for the BS/MS program as soon as they have completed 90 undergraduate credit hours and have grades posted for at least 3 upper division IS courses. Once pre-screened to start the BS/MS program, undergraduate students can start to enroll in graduate IS courses.
Students then submit an official university graduate program application for the MSIS program during the semester in which they will have completed both their undergraduate degree requirements and up to 12 graduate credits.
The ultimate authority to admit a student into any graduate program is the University of Utah Graduate School. As such, pre-screening approval does not guarantee admission into the MSIS program. However, applicants are carefully evaluated during the pre-screening process and it’s predicted that most pre-screened applicants will be admitted to the graduate program.
Students will follow all official MSIS application requirements with the exception of GMAT/GRE and recommendations requirements. Once admitted to the MSIS program and matriculated into graduate status, all BS/MS students are awarded a scholarship (approximately $4,400) as part of the co-terminal program.
