Co-Term Students


New Co-term students should be sure that all paperwork has been completed in a timely fashion to ensure the appropriate transfer of undergraduate coursework towards the MS program. More information may be found on the University Registrar's website.

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. These policies include continuous registration of leaves of absence for quarters not enrolled and minimal progress guidelines.

Advisor Assignment

During the first graduate quarter, a coterminal student is assigned an advisor in the MSE department.

Degree Conferral

Conferral of each degree is applied for separately by the deadlines given in the University Time Schedule (on Axess). The MS degree must be conferred simultaneously with, or after, the BS degree.
