Offered through the Mathematics program, the combined B.S./M.S. program will provide exceptional undergraduates with the opportunity to obtain both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Mathematics in 5 years, a shorter time than typically required to earn a B.S. plus M.S. if both degrees are pursued separately. The program will allow students to pursue any of the three current capstone options for the M.S. in Mathematics: a Masters Examination, a Masters Report or a Masters Thesis. The goal of the program is to produce graduates with a broad, solid grounding in mathematics to support further study at the doctoral level or to outfit the graduate for a mathematical job in industry, government or finance.
The student will work closely with the major professor to form a supervisory committee and file a program of study by the end of the first full semester following the students acceptance into the concurrent degree program, or the second semester of the students junior year, whichever is later. The undergraduate advisor will advise the student in the academic progress toward the B.S. degree, and the major professor will supervise the students academic progress and preparation for the M.S. degree capstone (examination, report or thesis).
Credits counting toward both degrees may be earned before the student takes the Graduate Basic Exam, which exam students in the concurrent program may take at any time once they are provisionally admitted to the M.S. program, but must attempt not later than the beginning of the second semester of their senior year. In the first semester after acceptance into the concurrent degree program, the student will select a major professor from the Graduate Faculty in Mathematics.

A typical M.S. program of study for students in the concurrent program would be identical to that for students in the traditional M.S. program:
* Examination option
* Report option
* Thesis option
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Most graduate students are able to finance their education with a variety of financial assistance tools specific to graduate school:
* Graduate Assistantships: Funded by individual departments and graduate programs, teaching, research and graduate assistantships are awarded based on a student's ability and promise.
* Graduate Fellowships
* Loans: Loans are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have successfully applied for financial assistance
* Traineeships: Traineeships are offered through the university or departments that have federally supported traineeships.
Kansas State University has been providing quality education to the residents of Kansas, the country and the world for the last 150 years.
Located in a community with nearly 60,000 people and more than 24,000 students, we are able to provide a safe and supportive environment for our students.
Kansas State University has 3 campus locations, two of which, Manhattan and Salina, have complete academic programs and on-campus housing. Olathe is the third and newest extension of the university, focusing on collaborating with industry and Kansas City K-12 schools.
Kansas State University has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association (NCA) of Colleges and Schools since 1916.
