Undergraduate Students and Graduate Courses

Undergraduate students in good standing, with a GPA of 3.000, may take graduate courses for undergraduate credit, with advisor approval and permission of the Dean and the Dean of the School in which the graduate course is offered.

Undergraduate students who are seniors and who have a GPA of 3.000 may take two graduate courses for graduate credit, with advisor approval and permission of the Dean of the School in which the graduate courses are offered. These courses may satisfy undergraduate requirements, or if they are completed beyond the 120 credits required for the baccalaureate degree, may satisfy graduate requirements.

Undergraduate students hoping to enroll in graduate coursework should be aware of the restrictions on the policies that support acceleration. No undergraduate degree can be completed with fewer than 120 credits. The graduate degree must include a minimum of 30 credits beyond the 120 required for the baccalaureate degree. Students in undergraduate programs should seek advisement from their program advisor and from the graduate program to which they will apply to ensure that the courses selected apply to the appropriate programs.
