The purpose of this policy is to explain the privilege of undergraduate senior student to register for graduate-level courses.
Under direction of the Provost, all Deans and Department Chairs shall implement this policy and all faculty shall ensure compliance with the policy.
This policy applies to all students of Rowan University.
Seniors at Rowan University who have earned a 3.0 GPA may request permission from the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) to register for one graduate-level course per semester for two semesters, not to exceed a total of six (6.0) credit hours. Students may take a graduate course for application to an undergraduate degree. If the number of graduate semester hours is to be applied to a graduate degree, the student must request a transfer of credit from the School of Graduate Studies (SGS). Approval from the instructor of the graduate course(s), the department chair of the graduate program, the undergraduate program advisor, and the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) is required for a student to be allowed to enroll in a graduate course for undergraduate credit. Permission and final approval for exceptions to the policy must also be obtained from the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies (SGS), who reserves the right to limit the number of graduate courses in which seniors may register. Undergraduate students who register for graduate level courses without permission of the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) will have their registrations withdrawn.
