Application processes are unique to each institution; therefore it’s important to contact the university you want to apply to fully understand their application process. In general though, students usually need to be admitted to both degree programs at the same time by filling out a separate application to each. Usually there’s a cut-off date, such as your second semester at the university, to declare a dual masters program. Also, in most cases you must submit a dual masters program application in addition to both the separate degree applications. Sometimes schools require students to complete one full year of one master’s curriculum before beginning on the other masters program.
