Graduate Special Classification

Graduate special classification applies to students who (1) do not wish to pursue a program leading to an advanced degree; (2) wish to pursue a program leading to an advanced degree, but need to complete additional undergraduate course work or take an examination in order to meet the admission requirements for graduate standing; or (3) can demonstrate that they meet all the requirements for admission to graduate standing, but are unable to complete the application for admission prior to registration.

With graduate special classification, students are normally not allowed to enroll in graduate business courses, but may enroll for undergraduate credit in the College of Business. Graduate special students must have the written approval of the director of graduate programs, in advance, in order to register for graduate-level courses in the college.

International students who are on a student visa are not eligible for admission to the graduate special classification.
