Student Classification

Date Implemented: May 15, 2002
Date Revised: February 24, 2009

Students who have received a baccalaureate degree and have been admitted to a degree program for the purpose of taking courses that may be used to meet the requirements of a degree beyond the baccalaureate are called "graduate students."

The Dean of the program may be petitioned for a waiver of this requirement. Copies of approved waivers are to be retained in the student’s file, the Dean’s Office and the Office of Academic Affairs.

Important Note: In the absence of a more stringent policy at the school or college level the University Graduate Academic Policies apply. Should a graduate program not have a specific policy or should there be omissions or gaps in the policy for a specific graduate school program, the University Graduate Policy shall govern.

The Graduate Academic Policies are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum Committee Convener. For additions or revisions contact
