9.5. If I finish my undergrad degree early, can I use my scholarship to pay for the entire MS?
In most cases, no. In general, undergraduate scholarships may only apply to undergraduate tuition; during the final year of the AMP, students pay graduate tuition. There are a few exceptions, however; check the terms and conditions page for information on your UA scholarship. If you have questions about whether your particular scholarship may apply toward graduate tuition, you are welcome to ask the Math Center to check this out for you.
For details, see the complete Degree and Tuition Policies for Accelerated Master's Programs. In particular:
- After completion of all baccalaureate requirements, students will be granted graduate status, be charged at the graduate rate, and be eligible for graduate assistantships. The student won't be eligible to graduate nor will they be eligible for assistantships until all baccalaureate requirements are completed. While an undergraduate, students are required to keep their graduate coursework cumulative GPA at 3.0 or higher to be admitted to the master's program.
- Should a student have completed 12 graduate credits, but not yet completed the undergraduate degree, they will be considered graduate for financial aid and tuition purposes with a graduate career in UAccess. They will no longer be eligible for undergraduate scholarships, nor will they be eligible for graduate assistantships.
- At least 12 graduate credits must be taken while in graduate status, after completing all requirements for the bachelor's degree.
Tuition and fees for graduate students may be found on the Bursar's website.
