Undergraduates in Graduate Courses
Undergraduate students at the University of Saint Francis are allowed to take graduate coursework as part of their academic load, provided they meet the following criteria:
- They must have senior status and be in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative 3.2 GPA.
- The graduate classes may be used as electives within their curricular requirements, and may not substitute for or replace required courses, unless approved through change of curriculum procedure.
- Their academic advisor, the graduate program director, and the course instructor approve their course selection.
- They select a graduate course which is scheduled to be offered in the term they wish to register, there are open seats in the class, and the course is not an independent study.
Courses taken as part of an undergraduate academic load will be billed at the undergraduate rate.
Grades earned in the graduate level courses will be applied toward the undergraduate GPA.
Successful completion of graduate courses does not guarantee admission to a graduate program. However, students who are subsequently admitted to a graduate program may request transfer of the credit hours toward their graduate degree requirements.
