Combined Degree Program

The B.S./M.S. program in Civil Engineering provides eligible undergraduate students (3.4 GPA or higher) with the opportunity to get a head-start on graduate studies by allowing them to use a limited number of graduate courses to satisfy requirements for both the B.S. and M.S. degrees.  Following are some guidelines:

  • Consult with an advisor in your intended area of graduate study before taking any graduate-level courses.
  • Up to 6 credit hours from approved 6000-level or 8000-level CE courses can be used to satisfy undergraduate technical electives.
  • The graduate courses taken as an undergraduate student will be listed in your graduate Plan of Study.
  • Students in the B.S./M.S. program are conditionally accepted to the graduate program pending the completion of the B.S. degree.
  • Typically, courses taken as a B.S./M.S. student are not transferable to other programs, either at Clemson or other schools.
  • B.S./M.S. students in their final undergraduate semester may also take a limited number  of 6000-level or 8000-level courses to be used for future graduate credit only.

The GS6BS/MS Form will serve as your application to the civil engineering graduate program – no additional application is required.  However, while the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is not mandatory, some fellowship applications may require GRE scores.
