Master Management Information Systems (MMIS) 5th Year Program

 What is the 5th Year Program? 

The MMIS 5th Year program is equivalent to the traditional on-campus program but is designed specifically for USU undergraduate students who would like to get a head start on their masters degree. Qualifying students can begin their graduate coursework during their undergraduate years and complete their masters degree in as little as one additional year. Qualifying MIS undergraduate students who meet certain requirements (see below) may also apply for a GMAT/GRE waiver.

 Do I qualify for the GMAT/GRE Waiver?

GMAT/GRE waivers are available for MIS undergrads who meet the following requirements:

  • Minimum 3.75 GPA and B+ or better in three of the following four courses: MIS 2100, MIS 3300, MIS 3330 and MIS 3500 (or equivalent programming course).
  • Minimum 3.5 GPA and B or better in four of the following five courses: MIS 2100, MIS 3300, MIS 3330, MIS 3500 (or equivalent programming course), and STAT 2300.

 

 How do I apply for the 5th Year Program?

During their Junior year, students should apply through the internal application available at the bottom of this webpage. For students who qualify for the GMAT/GRE waiver based on the above requirements, they will apply through the Fast-Track Application Process. For students who do not meet the GMAT/GRE waiver requirements, they will apply through our Standard-Track Application Process.
