Applicants without a Bachelor's degree or whose undergraduate GPA is under the 3.0 admission's requirement may be conditionally admitted. If a 3.0 is achieved, a student's application may be reconsidered for full admission.
Non-Degree Seeking Applicants
Those who do not meet admission requirements for the Master's program or who wish to take graduate courses without seeking the degree may be admitted into the Graduate Certificate Program or under the title of Non-Degree seeking. Non-Degree students who wish to take graduate courses will be considered on a space-available basis.
Normal requirements for admission may be waived for non-degree students who show sufficient aptitude to work at the graduate level. Such students may request to transfer from non-degree status to degree-seeking status after they have completed a full semester of course work (12 credit hours). At this time a full application must be filed with admissions. Degree seeking students will always be given priority in course registration.
Those who wish to audit graduate courses for no credit may take up to three courses per term. Auditors will be considered on a space-available basis. Degree seeking students will always be given priority in course registration.
