Undergraduate to Graduate programs

Students in their third year of undergraduate study with a qualifying GPA of 3.25 are eligible for Iowa’s Undergraduate to Graduate (U2G) programs—sometimes referred to as 4+1. You’ll save time and money by applying 10-15 semester hours toward both your undergraduate and graduate degrees. U2G makes it possible to graduate with a Master's in Finance or a Master's in Business Analytics in just two extra semesters (rather than the typical three).
