Such credit may be earned only in 500-level courses and, if it meets course requirements for the degree, may be counted toward a master’s degree. The senior must have an overall GPA that meets the minimum GPA required for admission to the graduate program offering the course. Permission is required from the department chair of their major, graduate program director, and the Graduate Dean through submission of the Permission for Seniors to Take Graduate Courses form. Once approval has been confirmed by the College of Graduate and Professional Studies, the Registrar and the student will be notified.
