Undergraduate Students Registering in Graduate Courses

—Students in Accelerated Bachelors to Masters (ABM) programs are not affected by this policy.

—Undergraduate students registered in programs offered through Extended Academic Programs (School of Professional Studies) are not eligible for this policy.

UIW seniors who are registering for the semester during which they will complete their bachelor’s degree requirements may register for graduate courses for graduate credit provided they also have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or greater. They must also have the approval of (1) their undergraduate advisor, (2) the director or coordinator of the graduate program responsible for offering the graduate course, (3) the Dean of the College or School that houses the graduate program, and (4) the Director of Graduate Studies. The student must secure these approval signatures and file the appropriate form with the Office of Graduate Studies.

  • Students may not take more than 6 semester hours of courses for graduate credit while registered as a senior.
  • Graduate courses must be taken in the semester the student is expected to graduate with an undergraduate degree.
  • Graduate course hours will not be counted toward the baccalaureate degree.
  • Students must apply and be admitted into a graduate program at UIW before they are eligible to enroll in graduate courses as an undergraduate student.
  • Students receiving financial aid should check with the Office of Financial Aid before registering for graduate courses as this may impact their financial aid status. (12-2016)
