You should submit A and B simultaneously, at least two semsters before you graduate. On Form A, on the line labelled “Admitted”, please enter the semester in which you plan to enroll as a graduate student, for example, “Spring 2015.”
    1. A Concurrent Enrollment Request Form for Graduate/Undergraduate Degree
    2. An Application to the Graduate College
