Integrated BS/MS Transition to the MS Program

Students in the B.S./M.S. will have their academic records reviewed upon conferral of the B.S. degree. At that time, the Graduate Studies Committee will decide, dependent upon a student’s academic success in prescribed coursework, whether the student will be admitted to the M.S. degree program effective the following Fall quarter.

Upon conferral of the B.S. degree, those students admitted to the M.S. degree program will be instructed to complete the UCSD online graduate application and submit required documentation. Completion of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is recommended but not required. The Office of Graduate Studies (OGS) will send official notification of student acceptance to the M.S. degree. Students do not become M.S. degree / graduate students until the Fall quarter.

Once students are admitted into the M.S. program, they are expected to complete all requirements for the M.S. degree, including completion of a written Master’s Thesis. M.S. degree program requirements can be found in the UCSD General Catalog and/or on the BENG website. M.S. degree students are not allowed to transfer to the M.Eng. degree without strong justification and the approval of the Graduate Studies Committee.
