Guidelines for Undergraduates to Take Graduate Level Courses

  1. No undergraduate student may take 400-level courses during a term where the student’s total credits are greater than 18 (including audits).
  2. All students receiving a graduate degree must be enrolled one full semester or summer as a regular student prior to the awarding of a graduate degree.
  3. An undergraduate student may use no more than 12 credits taken as an undergraduate toward a graduate degree. These courses must be at the 300 and 400 level and beyond all undergraduate degree requirements.
  4. Students should have achieved junior standing and a grade point average of 3.0 to take 400 level courses.
  5. Students must petition the Standing of Graduate Students and the Standing of Students for permission via the Undergraduate SOS Petition Form.
  6. Students requesting a second graduate level course in a given term must petition the Standing of Graduate students committee. (Students should not expect to take a second graduate level course if enrolled for more than 15 credits.)
