Co-Terminal Degrees

Students in the Co-Terminal degree program may simultaneously earn their bachelors and masters degrees while completing a smaller number of credit hours with better scheduling flexibility than completion of the two degrees separately. Students maintain the undergraduate status, while completing graduate coursework, and can maintain financial aid eligibility when applicable. Co-terminal degree programs allow currently enrolled Illinois Tech undergraduate students to complete both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, in as few as five years.

Students will start in the Information Technology and Management undergraduate program as either a first year or transfer student and may earn a masters degree in either Information Technology and Management or Cyber Forensics and Security.

Students will initially need to meet the First-Year admissions requirements and to continue in the program will need to meet the following criteria:

  • First-Year students will need to earn a GPA of 3.25 or better in the first three semesters at Illinois Tech
  • Transfer students will need to earn a GPA of 3.25 or better in the first two semesters
  • To continue in the graduate program you will need to earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better
