The Co-Terminal Program allows Rensselaer undergraduates to complete their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees within ten semesters while retaining undergraduate financial aid. Students can apply to almost any Master’s Program that Rensselaer offers, following the same curriculum as those in traditional Master’s Programs. Some applicants choose to pursue a Master’s degree in the same academic discipline, while others take a more interdisciplinary approach, applying to a graduate program outside of their undergraduate department. Students must apply before the end of the first semester of their senior year, but it is strongly recommended that students begin talking with the undergraduate advisor by the sophomore or junior year.
