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

If a student has been granted admission as a post-baccalaureate/post-graduate student and wishes to apply for admission to a degree program, the student must submit an application for admission as well as the appropriate admission requirements as indicated on the program/s catalog or web page. This procedure must be completed in ample time to meet the admission deadlines.

After students are regularly admitted to a graduate degree program, they may be permitted to count some of the courses taken under the post-baccalaureate or post-graduate status toward their graduate degrees. At the recommendation of the student’s graduate advisor, 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 to the dean of The Graduate College for degree credit.
