    UF has developed a program for undergraduate students that allows those who qualify academically to obtain both a bachelor’s and master’s degree. Minimum qualifications for many programs include a 3.2 GPA and an 1100 GRE for admission to Graduate School. Combined–degree programs allow students to get a head start on their graduate education by taking graduate courses throughout the junior and senior undergraduate years. In most programs, 12 credit hours of graduate work will also count toward an undergraduate degree, thus reducing the time it takes to get both degrees. Students should consult their department advisers to determine whether the department offers combined–degree programs and whether they qualify.

    There are a number of financial considerations students should keep in mind. The Bright Futures Scholarship Program will fund graduate tuition at the undergraduate level – students are responsible for paying the difference between undergraduate and graduate tuitions. Florida PrePaid College Tuition Program participants will receive funding for the first 120 credit hours. The program will fund graduate courses taken toward the undergraduate degree at the undergraduate level. Financial aid may be available to assist with the graduate degree portion of the program.

    Advantages of Combined Degrees

    • Qualified students can obtain an undergraduate and a graduate degree in much less time than two separate degrees.
    • The cost of both degrees is reduced, since at least 12 credits apply toward both degrees.
    • Students have time to decide whether to pursue further graduate or professional study.
    • Students’ marketability is greatly enhanced; many professions now require a master’s degree for entry–level positions.
