Yes, a undergraduate is a person who is going for their BA, A graduate is someone that has their BA and working for their masters. An undergraduate is any person enrolled in a four-year college or university program who has not yet graduated with his or her Bachelors degree, B.A.(Bachelor of Arts) or B.S. (Bachelor of Science). Whether you go straight on to college from high school, or enroll in college at a later date, if you are in college and working toward a four-year degree, you are an undergraduate. The term simply distinguishes one from a person studying toward a graduate degree, as in a Masters, M.A. or M.S. or Doctorate, Ph.D., degree. The timing is insignificant; it is the act of being in school that defines an undergraduate. Technically, you could be an 80-year-old undergraduate.

Can you take both graduate degrees and undergraduate degrees?

Yes, your undergraduate degree is what qualifies you for the graduate or master's degree. Make sure the undergraduate college you enroll in has the right accreditation for the master's you intend to enroll in. An undergraduate degree is required if you want to do your graduate or master's in that specific subject. Most universities accept students for master's only after they have completed their bachelor's. Although there are some colleges that offer dual programs in bachelor's and master's. Make sure the college you apply to is accredited, and also whether it is ready to transfer your credits from bachelor's to master's.
