The B.S./M.S. degree program option in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics allows an outstanding student to complete the requirements for both degrees in a period of 5 years.

Students in the B.S. program in Mathematics who have:

i. Completed a minimum of seventy-five (75) and a maximum of ninety-six (96) credit hours in their undergraduate programs, including credits earned from advanced placement, and

ii. Have a minimum accumulated grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 at WCU.

may apply for admission to Graduate School and permission to have up to 12 credit hours of graduate level course work during their senior year count as advanced placement toward their MS degree. Such a request must be approved by both the Head of the Mathematics Department and the Director of the Graduate Program of the Mathematics Department. They in turn must recommend this course of action to the Graduate School. After the student receives the BS degree and completes admission requirements, he or she may be officially admitted into the MS degree program in Applied Mathematics. After admission to the master’s program, the designated courses in which the student earned grades of B or better may be applied toward the requirements of that degree. These courses also count toward the 128 hours needed for the BS degree.
