The University Scholars Program offers particularly gifted and highly motivated students the opportunity and the challenge of integrating their undergraduate and graduate courses of study in a single continuous program culminating in both a baccalaureate and a master's degree. The total number of hours for the combined program may be as many as 12 fewer than the total required for both the bachelor's and the master's degrees separately. The requirements for the bachelor's degree are unaffected.
Ideally, an application to the program should be submitted at the end of the student's junior year. Applicants must have completed at least 90 credit hours of work toward the bachelor's degree, or be eligible for senior standing in the semester they are admitted to the program. The master's program should be in the field of the undergraduate major, and the undergraduate grade point average must be at least a 3.5 in the applicant's major field and 3.2 overall.
