Summary: Sequential Graduate/Undergraduate Studies Program (SGUS)
Election Form Instructions
The Rackham SGUS program was developed to promote greater enrollment of qualified College of Engineering students
in the M.S.E: Program by making it possible for students to pursue a five-year combined B.S.E./M.S.E, B.S.E./M.S. All
Engineering programs use SGUS except for EECS (Electrical Engineering, Electrical Engineering: Systems, & Computer
Science and Engineering), who use CUGS.
The student, in consultation with undergraduate and graduate advisors, develops a program that meets both the
requirements for the master's degree and those for the awarding of the bachelor's degree. This program must be recorded
on the SGUS Election Form in an attempt to avoid any difficulties before the student enrolls in the SGUS program. Any
changes in course elections or substitutions of course requirements, should be approved by both advisors, and a new
SGUS form should be sent to Rackham. Rackham Academic Records and Dissertations (OARD) reviews and approves
the final copy of the SGUS Election Form.
Applicants submit the Rackham application (for students who have never enrolled in Rackham), the application fee,
required credentials and SGUS Election Form. International applicants are also required to submit financial resource
information. The minimum g.p.a. must be at least 3.2 and may be higher in some programs.
1) SGUS students do not dual register.
2) Students will enroll in Rackham for any term within 12 months of graduation with the approval of the program. In
a few instances students may have up to 6 credits of the undergraduate program outstanding upon enrollment in
Rackham in accordance with Rackham rules. The undergraduate degree can be awarded as soon as the degree
