Bachelor's + Master's Pathway

Bachelor's + Master's Pathway Overview

The Bachelor's + Master's Pathway Program allows currently admitted BSME students to get a head-start on their master's degree. Students admitted into the Pathway Program are able to take up to 16 credit hours of 500 or 600 level course work as an undergraduate, at an undergraduate tuition rate*, and apply the credits to their undergraduate and graduate degrees. Admitted Pathway students have the potential to start their graduate program with 16 credits already completed.

Students must apply by the end of their junior year, and if admitted, will automatically matriculate into an MME graduate program as long as they meet the pathway continuation criteria. Students in the Pathway Program can pursue any of the MME master level graduate programs.

Credit Application

Once a Pathway student is formally admitted into a graduate MME program, the Department will request the 500 or 600 level credits taken as an undergraduate to be applied to his or her master's degree. Only coursework with a grade of B+ or higher will be applied.


*Post-bac students will be charged graduate tuition rates per PSU policy.
