UF Industrial and Systems Engineering Students can apply for one of three (3) available combination degree (4+1) programs, which will allow you to get a “head start” on earning graduate credits while still in your undergraduate program.
Each of these programs, all of which require some sort of application process, will allow some credits to “double count” toward both your BS and your MS/ME degrees; please see specific details for each program at the following links:
Bright Futures & Combination Degree Policy
Bright Futures will pay up to the undergraduate tuition rate for your graduate courses if you have yet to receive your Bachelor’s degree. You are responsible for paying the difference, as graduate tuitions credits are more expensive than undergraduate tuition credits. Therefore, it is critical that you plan out your courses so you graduate with both degrees at the same time. You can also apply for an extension of Bright Futures for up to 12 credits.
