Graduate Credits taken as an Undergraduate


Graduate Credits taken as an Undergraduate

Undergraduate students wishing to take a graduate course (600-level) for credit that will apply to the undergraduate degree may do so with the permission of their academic advisor, Department Chair, and the Dean of their school.

In order to be eligible, a student must:

  • Have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better

and

  • Have no more than 15 credit hours of undergraduate requirements to be met in order to complete the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree

or

  •  Have no more than 15 credit hours of required undergraduate work remaining, in addition to full-time off-campus fieldwork, that will be done in the following semester.

The Petition for Approval to Take Graduate Courses for Credit While Still an Undergraduate must be approved prior to registering for the course.

Courses may be applied to either the student’s current undergraduate program or may be taken for graduate credit. If a graduate course is applied to an undergraduate degree the course may not be used toward a future graduate degree.

Note:  This excludes academic programs whose curricular design combines undergraduate and graduate requirements.
