Library books

Undergraduates with strong academic records in certain programs may apply for admission to the BS/MS Program, which leads to the award of both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from NYU Tandon.

While still undergraduates, this program allows students to make steady progress towards completing the two degrees for a lesser cost through a combination of earned AP credits, completed summer coursework, and additional credits over the limit completed each semester. Qualified students are typically considered for admission to the program during their junior year. In their remaining undergraduate semesters, they will complete some graduate coursework during regular terms and/or during the summer towards their desired master's degree.

Please note that the BS/MS Program applies to degrees at NYU Tandon only. The master's degree cannot be pursued at another school of NYU.

The BS/MS Program is open to current Tandon students who meet the eligibility criteria. External transfer students and students pursuing a second bachelor's degree are not eligible for this program. Internal transfer students may be considered for the program on a case-by-case basis.

    Tuition, Fees, and Scholarship Benefits

    Students will pay regular School of Engineering undergraduate tuition during the undergraduate portion of the program. All financial aid and scholarships can be used toward the completion of the undergraduate degree. Students receiving undergraduate financial aid are required to maintain at least half-time enrollment status (minimum 6 undergraduate credits that apply to their BS degree requirements) in the final undergraduate semester in order to extend their aid eligibility. Students are strongly advised to contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss their individual situation and how their enrollment status would impact their financial aid.

    The BS degree should be completed within 4 years. If more time is needed, students may file an appeal for continued undergraduate financial aid. Students are no longer eligible to receive undergraduate financial aid and undergraduate scholarships after transitioning to the MS program.

    Students in the BS/MS program receive a graduate scholarship covering 50% of tuition and registration fees for credits required during the MS portion of the program. The scholarship is provided only after the completion of the BS degree and upon matriculation into a graduate program. It is calculated on the basis of the remaining credits needed to complete the MS degree.

    The graduate tuition scholarship will be available for a maximum of twelve months from the start of the student’s first term in the graduate program after the conferral of the BS degree.

    The BS/MS scholarship can only be applied to graduate credits that are needed to complete the MS degree. In addition, students who receive a W grade for a graduate course will not receive additional BS/MS scholarship funds to either retake or replace those credits.

    Students are no longer eligible to receive undergraduate financial aid and undergraduate scholarships after transitioning to the MS program. If additional financial support is needed beyond the BS/MS scholarship, students must contact the Office of Financial Aid to discuss their eligibility for graduate financial aid.
