Students enrolled in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences or in University College-Camden may apply during their junior year to enter a dual-degree program (B.A./M.A., B.A./M.P.A., B.A./M.A.T., or B.S./M.S.). These programs enable students with strong academic credentials to begin graduate work while still undergraduates, thus speeding the completion of the master's degree. Camden undergraduates who intend to pursue a master's degree in the Graduate School-Camden must be approved for entry into the dual-degree program by the director of the graduate program in which they wish to study. If accepted into a 30-credit graduate program, they may take up to three graduate courses during their senior year. These three courses are charged at the undergraduate tuition rate, but are double-counted toward both the B.A. (or B.S., if applicable) and the master's degree requirements. If accepted into a 42-credit graduate program, they may take four courses during their senior year. These four courses are charged at the undergraduate tuition rate, but are double-counted toward both the bachelor's and the master's degree requirements. As seniors, students must apply to the Graduate School-Camden in the regular fashion, and be formally admitted and matriculated. They then go on to complete the remainder of their credits as master's-level students.
