Dual Degree Applicants

Current Rackham Students

Unlike many other programs on campus, the Quant Program does not accept dual degree applicants through the online Add a Degree or Certificate system. Any current U-M graduate student wishing to earn the Quant master's degree must apply to the program with a new Rackham Graduate Application just as any external student would. The deadlines and requirements for these students is also the same. If admitted to the Quant Program, the student will need additional approval from their home department to become dual-enrolled in both programs. Dual-degree students are eligible for double-counting subject to Rackham's guidelines and the approval of both programs.


External Students

If you are interested in multiple programs at the University of Michigan, we encourage you to apply for them. The status of your application in another program will have no impact on your application to the Quant Program. However, our Graduate School's policy dictates that new students can only enroll in one program in their first semester. If admitted to multiple programs, you must choose only one to enroll in. After your first semester, you can apply add additional programs with the consent of both departments and in accordance with the second program's application procedures.

If you choose to initially enroll in the Quant Program and are admitted to a second program later on, the Quant Program will in most cases be supportive. However, because of the rigidity of our course sequences, you may have difficulty meeting the enrollment demands of a second program.

Nevertheless any of our enrolled students do choose to pursue additional master's degrees and graduate certificates in complementary fields such as applied statistics, applied economics, and data science.
