The linked program allows students with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher to apply for admission to the master of science (MS) degree program. If accepted, up to 9 credits from their MSU undergraduate program may also be counted toward the requirements for a master’s degree. These credits must be at the 400-level or above.
- Admission to the program requires a minimum grade-point average of 3.0.
- Students should apply in their junior or senior year. Students should apply for admission to the MS program prior to the first semester in which they plan to take a course that would count toward both degrees. (For example, if you take a course in the Fall Semester and use that course toward the 30 required MS credits, then you must apply to the MS program during the preceding Spring Semester).
- You cannot use courses already completed in previous semesters or courses that you are currently enrolled in for the Dual BS/MS program.
- Find an initial MS advisor in the focus area of interest (e.g., environmental/water resources, geotechnical/pavements, structures, transportation). The Graduate Director can assist in identifying this advisor.
- Begin an application to the MS program in Civil and Environmental Engineering. The university graduate application system is found on the following website - https://admissions.msu.edu/gradportal/. Complete the required information, but do NOT pay the application fee. The fee is waived for Dual BS/MS students. Inform the Graduate Secretary that you have completed the application, and they will assist in processing your request.
