Students who are enrolled in the B.S. in Physics program may elect to take graduate courses that will count toward the M.S. in Physics and Applied Physics degree. Up to six hours of graduate credit may be earned in this way without any special provision. In order to offer more than six hours of pre-admission graduate credit toward the graduate degree, a student must apply to the Department of Physics graduate admission committee for admission to the accelerated B.S.-M.S. program.
