Coterminal Master’s

Main content start

Stanford undergraduates may work simultaneously toward a bachelor’s and a master’s degree. The degrees may be granted simultaneously or the bachelor’s degree may be awarded first.

Please see Coterm Admissions for more information about the admissions process. For questions, please contact Allysa Bernardo, Aero/Astro Student Services Specialist. Email:

Graduate student policies apply

For coterminal students, the quarter following completion of 12 full tuition undergraduate quarters is identified as the first graduate quarter for tuition assessment. Beginning with this quarter, coterminal students are subject to graduate student policies and procedures including those described in the “Graduate Degrees” section of the Stanford Bulletin, in addition to undergraduate minimum-progress standards. More information on the coterminal program policies is on the Registrar’s website.

Financial support

Stanford Fellowships are generally not awarded to coterm applicants. We recommend that you apply for external fellowships to fund your graduate program. Please come by the Aero/Astro Student Services Office if you have questions on fellowships.

Assistantships are available to coterm students. These positions are contracts for students to do research or teach in exchange for salary and tuition. Please see the assistantship section of our Financial Aid page for more information.

New coterm students should be sure that all paperwork is completed in a timely fashion to ensure the appropriate transfer of undergraduate coursework toward the master's program. Further information on the Aero/Astro master’s program can be found on this website.
