Graduate and Professional School Credit
Approval of the instructor and the teaching department is necessary for an undergraduate to enroll in a 500-level course. The Graduate College does not have to approve the registration. You must complete the following steps to register in a 500-level course:
- Pick up an application from the Records Service Center, Office of Admissions and Records.
- Obtain the signature of the instructor of the course.
- Ask your undergraduate advisor to sign the application form. You may not be self-advising for this purpose.
Transfer of Credit from Professional Schools
If you have satisfied both college and major residency requirements, you may use basic medical science credit satisfactorily completed at a fully accredited medical, veterinary, or dental school for courses acceptable to the major and apply that credit to LAS degree requirements. The amount of transfer credit may not exceed 30 hours, and duplication of courses completed on this campus is not permitted. Credit will be counted only upon completion of at least one year of professional study.
If you plan to complete your baccalaureate degree requirements by attending a medical, veterinary, or dental school, you must obtain an evaluation of credit before attending that school. It is quite possible that less than the maximum amount of credit may be acceptable as transfer credit; therefore, be certain to consult your admissions/records officer as early as possible.
If there is a question whether a course meets the criteria for acceptance of the amount of credit to be granted, the course will be evaluated in the appropriate academic department. You will be responsible for providing the necessary information to the head of that department (or the head's designate); that person, in turn, will make a recommendation to the college regarding the credit. The dean of the college or a designate will make the final determination.
The prior agreement regarding transfer credit from professional schools must be included in your major plan-of-study form.
