Co-Terminal Program

Rensselaer's Co-Terminal Program provides undergraduates the opportunity to pursue graduate degrees while maintaining their undergraduate Rensselaer funding. Most Rensselaer master’s programs are available as part of the Co-Terminal Program, and participants follow the same curriculum as traditional master's students. Co-Terminal students can pursue a master’s degree in the same academic discipline as their bachelor's or take an interdisciplinary approach, applying to a graduate program outside of their undergraduate department.

Co-Term students are required to graduate with their bachelor's degree in up to eight semesters, with a minimum GPA of 3.0. After graduating with their BS degree, they have up to two semesters to complete their master's degree.

Applications are due prior to the end of the first semester of senior year. Interested applicants are strongly encouraged to begin talking with their undergraduate advisors during their sophomore or junior years.
