GRADUATE ADMISSIONS

Conditional Degree Seeking

The conditional category exists for students who wish to pursue a graduate degree but have not yet met all the admission requirements. Candidates admitted under this category must have applied for degree-seeking status. To be granted conditional degree-seeking status, the applicant must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university, submit a completed application for degree-seeking students, pay the related application fee and arrange for all official transcripts to be sent to the Graduate Studies Office.

To continue enrollment beyond the first term of attendance, the applicant must be admitted as a degree-seeking candidate prior to the beginning of the next regular term of 10 weeks or more. Students in this category may not take more than 6 semester hours of graduate work and must earn a grade of B or better in each course attempted. Students will not be allowed to enroll in graduate courses for which they have not had the prerequisites required for the class. (If during the course of the semester of conditional enrollment it is discovered that the student does not meet graduate requirements, he or she may be asked to withdraw from graduate classes).
