Purdue PhD but accepted to MS

Question

Hello,

I got a decision letter to Purdue's Graduate School.  I applied for the PhD program at Purdue, but my decision letter states that my degree objective is MS in Aeronautics & Astronautics (MSAA).  Does that mean I was rejected for the PhD program?

Definitely double check, but it is possible that the first year is considered an MS and then you get formally 'accepted' into the PhD after. My program is kind of like this, but more clear about the process (you apply to the masters, but then you get right in to the PhD unless you were super terrible).

 

Another clue to help is if its funded, it may be a lead-in to the PhD. If it's unfunded, it's likely a stand-alone program. But nothing is better than asking.

My Program if you don't get accepted to the PhD program, they automatically send applications to MA for consideration. Masters programs usually take more students than PhD programs. So it might just call admissions or email them.
