Integrated Bachelor to Master's Plan

A University of Wisconsin-Platteville B.S. to M.S. curriculum integrates the coursework required for an undergraduate degree and a master’s degree, leading to completion of both in just five years of full-time study. 

Normally requiring six or more years, this sequence of degrees allows selected graduate courses to count toward both degrees, reducing your time to completion and providing you a very efficient and marketable combination of academic credentials.


At time of entrance, you must meet these requirements:

  • You have completed of 60 credits
  • You are in a declared major
  • Your cumulative GPA is 3.0 or higher
  • Your major GPA is 3.0 or higher

How to Start the B.S. to M.S. Plan

  1. Consult with your undergraduate advisor. Request that they submit the Advisor Recommendation Form for the Integrated B.S. to M.S. program.
  2. Consult with the appropriate graduate program coordinator to discuss a program plan once you have a completed advisor recommendation form.
  3. Write your approximately 500-word application essay demonstrating your writing ability, and summarizing reasons for seeking acceptance. Include career and academic goals.
  4. Complete the Application of Interest where you will submit your essay and advisor recommendation form.
  5. The appropriate program coordinator and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies will review the application. You will receive a notification of a decision upon review.
  6. When you are ready to enroll in a graduate-level course:
    • Contact the appropriate graduate program coordinator to request permission for enrollment with the Course Request Form.
    • Upon completion of the course, work with your advisor to complete a Degree Program Change form. The form will allow the course to count in both your undergraduate and graduate degrees.
