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

If a student was previously 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 required admission documents as indicated on The Graduate College's website. 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.
