Graduate Non-Degree Policies
- GND students may enroll in graduate courses only or a combination of graduate and undergraduate courses. Those who wish to enroll in only undergraduate courses shouldcomplete the Undergraduate Admission Visiting Student Application.
- GND students are expected to maintain a minimum Graduate Non-Degree cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or higher. Graduate programs will not accept coursework below a 3.0.
- Before taking graduate courses, GND students should contact the graduate department in which their interest lies since many graduate and professional programs only allow their own degree-seeking students in their classes.
- If a graduate program permits GND students to take some graduate courses, students may take no more than 9-12 graduate credit hours in an academic discipline. GND students may take no more than 18 undergraduate credit hours in an academic discipline, unless they request special permission from the department. That special permission must be communicated from the program advisor to the GND Coordinator by e-mail.
- GND students admitted previously after January 1, 1993, who have stopped out for a semester or longer but want to take graduate courses only or a combination of graduate and undergraduate courses, will need to be reactivated by completing and submitting the Graduate Non-Degree Update Form.
- GND students admitted prior to January 1, 1993, who wish to enroll in graduate courses only or a combination of graduate and undergraduate courses, will need to complete a new application.
- Admission to the GND Program will not guarantee admission to a graduate degree program.
