Application For Graduate Non-Degree Status
You can take up to 3 courses with this status that will count toward your MS degree if and when you are accepted into the program.
Application For Undergraduate Non-Degree Status
You can take the prerequisites as a non-degree undergraduate or after you have been admitted to the program. If you choose the latter, you will pay graduate tuition. Sometimes, though, financial aid requires you to be in a degree program.
An undergraduate senior student may earn up to 12 hours of graduate credit at the undergraduate tuition rate while enrolled as a Combination Senior. Eligible students may enroll concurrently in undergraduate and select graduate courses. You must have a total cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 and must have filed with the MS Accounting Coordinator a plan for completing the bachelor's degree within two semesters. Approval to register for graduate credit does not imply approval for admission into a graduate program at the University or that the credit earned will be accepted towards a graduate degree. After the bachelor's degree is awarded, a Combination Senior student must make formal application in order to be admitted to a graduate degree program. Courses taken for graduate credit may not be used for both the baccalaureate and graduate degree. Combination seniors are not eligible for graduate assistantships.
Admission to Non-Degree Status
The Graduate Non‐Degree classification allows individuals who have not yet decided to pursue a graduate degree or who have professional development needs to enroll in MS courses (a maximum of 9 credit hours). To remain enrolled as a Graduate Non‐Degree student, individuals must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0. Note that the 9‐hour maximum is more stringent than the University Graduate School policy.
Before registering for a second semester of graduate level coursework, the non‐degree student is required to sign a release agreeing that additional coursework will not apply to degree programs.
Non‐degree students must maintain a 3.00 GPA in graduate courses in order to re‐enroll and are not eligible for graduate assistantships.
