Integrated Degree & Sequential Degree Programs

Integrated Degree & Sequential Degree Programs (IDP/IDP+/SDP)

Procedures & Guidelines

Exceptional undergraduate students may be recruited to integrated bachelor’s/master’s or bachelor’s/doctoral degree programs (IDPs). An IDP partners an undergraduate and graduate program within or between departments, programs, or SAUs in the same or differing colleges. The graduate degree will be awarded after or concurrently with the award of the Baccalaureate degree. Second bachelor’s students are not eligible for IDPs. There are two types of IDPs: 1) the IDP is for undergraduate programs that have a 120 degree credit requirement; 2) the IDP+ is for undergraduate programs that have a 121, or more, degree credit requirement.

Sequential degree programs (SDPs) partner an undergraduate and a graduate program within or between departments, programs, or SAUs in the same or differing colleges. The graduate degree will be awarded only after the award of the Baccalaureate degree. Undergraduate students complete a SDP application created by the partnering undergraduate and graduate programs. The timing of the application and its requirements are defined by the partnering programs and include minimum requirements related to criteria such as GRE, recommendations, and research experience.

Additional information regarding IDP, IDP+ or SDP may be found on the Graduate & Professional Bulletin.

To be eligible to offer an IDP, IDP+ or SDP, a specific program must submit, and have approved by the Graduate School, a one-time Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) providing the following information and agreements. Refer to the MOU templates listed below.
