Co-terminal Bachelor and Master Degrees

The coterminal degree program allows Stanford undergraduates to study for a master's degree while completing their bachelor's degree(s) in the same or a different department. 

Undergraduates with strong academic records may apply for admission to a coterminal master's program upon completion of 120 units, but no later than the quarter prior to the expected completion of the undergraduate degree. Full-time enrollment during Summer Quarters, as well as allowable undergraduate transfer credit, are also counted toward quarters of undergraduate study. Students who wish to apply for a master's program after these deadlines must apply through the regular graduate admissions process.

The specific university residency, unit requirement and additional policies for a bachelor's/master's program are described here

Applications to the Chemical Engineering Coterminal Program are accepted each quarter. The deadline for completed applications is the seventh week of each quarter in order to gain admission the following quarter.

See Departmental Student Services in Shriram, Room 129, between 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., W/Th/F for further information before applying.
