All undergraduate students who wish to take graduate courses for undergraduate credit should contact the academic department directly for approval procedures. Taking a graduate course for undergraduate credit means that these credits will be applied to a student’s undergraduate career. Graduate Policies continue to apply to graduate courses that are taken by undergraduate students and/or used to meet undergraduate degree requirements. Please see the Office of the Registrar website for the proper form.
Permission to take graduate courses for undergraduate credit must be obtained by the end of the drop/add period of the respective semester or summer session.
- Junior or senior standing and acceptance into an academic major or approved special major;
- A minimum GPA of 3.0 overall, including transfer credit and completion of prerequisites required for the graduate course; and
- Written recommendation from the course instructor that clearly states the academic necessity and rationale for taking the course, and the endorsement of the department chair.
