Transition to a Master's Degree: Hope International University occasionally allows senior undergraduate students to enroll in master's courses. Hope allows a maximum of 15 graduate units to apply to a bachelor's degree. The university allows a maximum of 9 graduate units to apply to both a master's degree and a bachelor's degree. Accordingly, Hope strongly encourages seniors to complete graduate courses and apply them to their undergraduate degree. In this way, students may complete their bachelor's degree while getting a 'head start' on a master's program. To explore the possibility of participating in such 'transition courses,' speak with your Department Chair or academic advisor. Students enrolled in a Hope bachelor's program may complete such 'transition courses' at the undergraduate tuition rate.
