Changing Certification/Certificate/Non-Degree Status to Degree-Seeking Status

If a student has been granted admission as a post-baccalaureate or post-graduate student and wishes to apply for admission to a degree program, the student must submit an application for admission and comply with instructions as identified earlier under the degree-seeking admission requirements. This procedure must be completed in ample time to meet the admission deadlines.

After a student is regularly admitted to a graduate degree program, he or she may be permitted to utilize some of the courses taken under the post-baccalaureate or post-graduate status toward their graduate degree. At the recommendation of the student’s graduate advisor and with approval of the dean of The Graduate College, up to six hours of graduate-level courses taken under the post-baccalaureate or post-graduate status with a grade of “B” or better may be petitioned for degree credit.
