The SCIS Integrated Program requires the student to earn a minimum of 150 credits in order to earn both degrees. Some students may be able to earn an integrated program discount of 3 to 6 credits. Students on undergraduate checksheets that require 126 or more credits may receive up to 6 credits of discount. Students on undergraduate checksheets that require 123 to 125 credits, may receive up to 3 credits of discount. Students on undergraduate checksheets requiring fewer than 123 credits will not receive any integrated program discount since their combined credits must equal at least 150 credits. The integrated program discount is normally applied on the graduate checksheet.

The Integrated Flat Rate of tuition is just a little over $1000 per year more than the Traditional Flat Rate of tuition. Traditional graduate students must pay per credit so having the flat rate option with the Integrated program is a huge savings in additional to your RMU scholarship applying in the fifth year of study.
Students will delay their undergraduate degree completion and participation in commencement ceremonies until completion of the integrated program.
