Graduate Courses

Graduate credit will not be given for any course below the 400 level. At most 6 credits may be taken at the undergraduate level with permission of the advisory committee and the graduate coordinator. Normally, only a grade of A or B is acceptable for degree credit. A grade of C may carry graduate degree credit if a student’s advisory committee so recommends and if the Graduate School approves such an exception. No student, however, will be allowed to accumulate more than six hours of C grades in a Master’s degree program, nor more than 12 hours of C grades in a Ph.D. or Ed.D. program.
