Joint Degree Programs

Admission Requirements and Policy
Applicants must apply to and be accepted into each program separately. Applicants who intend to pursue the dual degree program must indicate that on the application for admission.

Joint degree applicants must also notify the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs when submitting their application to the master's program of their choice.

Applications should be submitted sufficiently in advance of the application deadline to assure adequate processing time at both institutions.

Ordinarily, applications to each institution should be filed simultaneously, even if the student will not be taking courses at both institutions during the first year of study.

However, a student matriculated in either the JD or MS program could apply to the other institution in order to pursue the dual degree prior to the end of the first year of study.
