Fifth-Year and Early Admit Policies

The Fifth Year and Early Admit programs offer academically outstanding Boston College juniors a unique opportunity to begin graduate study during their undergraduate senior year. The program allows students to graduate with both a bachelor's and a master's degree in a shortened time frame.

Upon admission to the program, students can take up to two graduate-level courses in their senior year. In addition to the time advantage, there is a considerable savings involved. The two graduate-level courses taken in the senior year are covered by undergraduate tuition, so the amount saved at current graduate tuition rates could be more than $10,000.

All undergraduate juniors in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development, Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences, Connell School of Nursing, and Carroll School of Management are eligible to apply for these programs.
