Undergraduate Students and Graduate Courses

Undergraduate students who are seniors in good standing, with a cumulative GPA of 3.000 or higher, may take graduate courses for undergraduate credit.

Qualified undergraduate students may take up to twelve (12) graduate credits, 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 the graduate credits 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 new credits beyond the 120 required for the baccalaureate degree. Students in undergraduate programs should seek advisement from their faculty advisor and from the graduate program to which they will apply to review how the courses selected apply to the appropriate programs.

To be registered for a graduate class (if approvals are granted), completion of the Registration Exception Request Form is required.
