Co-terminal degrees allow outstanding Illinois Institute of Technology undergraduate 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. All degree requirements must be completed within six years of undergraduate matriculation, or the student will be dismissed from the co-terminal degree program.
