The BSMS Option allows eligible students to double count a maximum of 6 credit hours toward undergraduate and graduate requirements while still completing all other program requirements to earn both degrees. 

To apply for the option, undergraduate Physics students (BS in Applied Physics or BS in Physics) must have at least 30 credit hours earned at Georgia Tech with an undergraduate GPA of 3.3 or higher, and fewer than 90 credits overall (including transfer credit).

The minimum GPA to graduate with an undergraduate degree in Applied Physics/Physics to continue to the MS in Physics program is 3.0. The minimum GPA for graduation with the MS in 2.7.

Students will need to consult with an advisor to indicate which courses are sharing with the graduate degree in DegreeWorks.
