Students with a baccalaureate degree who wish to take courses for graduate credit but who are not seeking admission to a graduate program may enroll as a "graduate special" student (admission status is "graduate unclassified"). International students are not eligible for Graduate Special status. Students who later wish to be admitted to a graduate degree program must submit a new application and meet all admission criteria for the specific program. Credits earned as a Graduate Special student may later be applied to a degree program with advisor approval, but cannot exceed nine (9) semester credits. Graduate Special students are not eligible for most types of financial aid. Students who are denied admission to a degree program may not register as Graduate Special students.
