Co-terminal degrees allow IIT students to simultaneously complete both an undergraduate and graduate degree (Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree). Co-terminal degrees provide an opportunity for students to gain greater knowledge in specialized areas, while completing a smaller number of credit hours with increased scheduling flexibility than the completion of two degrees separately. Because most co-terminal degrees allow students to share course credit (a maximum of 9 credit hours), students may complete both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in as few as five years.
Co-terminal students maintain their undergraduate student status while completing graduate coursework, and can maintain financial aid eligibility when applicable. Please see below for more information.
