General Information

At Stanford, students can get both a BS and MS degrees together by participating in the Coterminal Master's Program, or "coterm" for short. This program is extremely popular in computer science, with students from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds (including CS, EE, Psychology, and more) pursuing an MSCS. Any questions about the admissions process should be directed to

Please note that the Coterm program is for current Stanford students only. Procedures for applying are different from our regular Masters admissions process.  

Coterm Application Fee:  $125 coterm application fee will be assessed for each matriculated coterm student (students who accept the coterm admit offer.)

If you are admitted to the CS coterm program and have accepted the offer, you are not eligible to defer the offer.
