The Fifth Year Masters Program is available to Carnegie Mellon undergraduates. Students interested in the program should apply at the beginning of their last year of college. Admission decisions will be announced the following January. The goal is to confirm acceptance prior to the normal job search and graduate school acceptance times. Early admission may also allow students to tailor the remainder of their undergraduate program to prepare for the Fifth Year Masters Program. If a student applies to this program and other MS/PhD programs and if admitted to this and other programs, the student must chose one program.
