Bachelor & Master of Science Degree Admissions

Overview

All current American University undergraduate students have the option to apply for admission to MS programs at the Kogod School of Business as Combined Bachelors/Masters applicants while still enrolled in their undergraduate program.

Students interested in admission to a Kogod School of Business MS program as a combined bachelors/masters applicant must:

  1. Print off the Kogod Combined Bachelors/Masters Confirmation form.
  2. Bring the form and meet with a Kogod undergraduate academic advisor to confirm that their degree plan is designed to best accommodate the Bachelors/Masters option, if admitted. Please call 202-885-1914 to schedule a Bachelors/Masters advising appointment.
  3. Complete the full Kogod graduate application process as outlined in the Application Guide, including submission of all official supplemental application materials according to Combined Bachelors/Masters deadlines. Please be sure to select the BS/MS program option from the list of Academic Programs. They are towards the bottom of the list.
