Incoming bachelor’s students will apply through Undergraduate Admissions. After acceptance to Georgia State, students interested in a dual-degree program should discuss the requirements for eligibility with the dual-degree program coordinator at the start of their sophomore year.
If you’re a senior in high school or if you graduated from high school within the last two years, you’ll apply to begin your bachelor’s degree program using Georgia State’s Common Application.
International applicants are those students who are in the U.S. on a non-immigrant visa (B-1, H-1, J-1, etc.), students who are living outside the U.S. and who will require an F-1 visa to study in the United States, students who are in the process of applying for Permanent Residency status, but have not yet received the Permanent Residency card or students who have been educated outside the U.S.
If you’re already in college but need a change, transferring to Georgia State can provide you with the opportunities you need to succeed — in school and after graduation.
Dual-Degree Program Eligibility
The Dual B.S./M.S. Program in Computer Science is available to undergraduate computer science majors who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5. Students may apply at any time once they have taken between 30-80 credit hours.
Email CASDualDegree@gsu.edu to discuss eligibility with the coordinator of the dual-degree program, Ms. Rene Mondy. If eligible, you’ll be provided the dual-degree program electronic application to fill out. Decisions are typically emailed within 10 business days.
Students accepted into dual undergraduate/graduate programs must work with the program graduate director each term to develop a plan for taking graduate courses during their senior year (or earlier for specific programs) degree program while still completing their final year of bachelor’s work.
Acceptance into the dual-degree program does not constitute admission to the graduate degree program. Admission to the graduate program occurs in the senior year of undergraduate study and is contingent upon 1) successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, 2) maintenance of the required program grade-point average, 3) performance in the graduate-level courses taken during the bachelor’s degree and 4) meeting of the other admission requirements of the specific program.
Additional requirements to qualify for the dual degree in computer science include:
- B or better grade in CSc 1301, CSc 1302, CSc 2720 and either CSc 2510 or Math 2420
- A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and across the above courses
- Completion of no more than 4 credit hours in Area H
