Graduate Credit

Graduate students who are officially accepted into the Graduate School can earn graduate credit for a course if the course is a 5000-level course or higher. As per the university policy regarding course numbering, the syllabus for a post-baccalaureate/graduate course (5000-level) that is cross-listed with a 4000-level course should include learning outcomes that clearly describe and distinguish the expectations of undergraduate and graduate students. These outcomes may be overlapping and/or represent different levels of engagement with the same content, but they must be communicated explicitly for undergraduate and graduate students.

Graduate students taking courses while in a non-degree status may request subsequent transfer of credits to their degree program, once formally admitted to a degree program, by submitting a Master’s Degree Transfer of Credit Request Form, available online at the Graduate School forms website.
