Three-Two (3-2) Programs

Several programs are available that permit selected students to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in five years instead of six.

The 3-2 program offered by the Simon Business School requires accepted students to be enrolled as full-time graduate students during their senior year. Thus, students interested in this program should have completed all College and major requirements by the end of the junior year. Grades earned in the senior year do not affect the undergraduate grade point average but do affect Latin honors.

Other 3-2 programs generally expect students to take both graduate and undergraduate courses during their senior year. Since these programs do not formally admit students to full graduate status until the fifth year, their senior grades are calculated into the grade point average.

For more information about 3-2 programs, see the Undergraduate Bulletin and Master's Degree at UR (Transfer Credit Policy).
