Who Can Participate

Undergraduate students who have matriculated at Rhode Island College can apply for conditional admission to the M.A. in mathematical studies program after completing 60 undergraduate credits. Students who are conditionally admitted to the M.A. program begin taking graduate courses after completing 90 undergraduate credits. Students who remain in good standing and continue to meet admission requirements upon completion of the bachelor’s degree will be granted full admission to the M.A. program.

Application requirements remain the same as those for the M.A. in mathematics, with the following exceptions: the GRE General Exam will be waived for B.A.-to-M.A. applications if the applicant has a 3.0 GPA overall, and has grades of B or higher in all courses required for admission to the M.A. program. Applicants must complete MATH 300 and at least six of the required 12 math courses for the B.A. program prior to taking graduate-level courses.
