“Level Up” and earn your master’s degree in just one year, plus maximize your time during your senior year and save nearly $10,000. The 4+1 is an opportunity for academically talented undergraduate Florida Poly students to “level up” in their academic career by enrolling in two graduate- level courses in their senior year. The two graduate-level courses taken in senior year are billed at a discounted rate.
The application is by invitation only. Eligible students are invited to apply at the end of their junior year, as they go into senior year. Specific information on how to apply, as well as deadlines, will be shared with students in their initial invitation email.
Yes! Keep in mind, Graduate Assistants (GAs) must declare the Thesis pathway. Though the 4+1 is designed to be completed in the Course-only pathway, which does not require a Thesis, students can apply for Thesis/GA later through a separate admission process. Being in the 4+1 and being a GA are not mutually exclusive.
