Students pursuing this privilege must obtain approval from their academic department head, their academic dean, and the graduate dean. That approval verifies that:
- no more than 30 semester hours are lacking to complete baccalaureate degree requirements and
- the student has a minimum cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 3.2.
While taking advantage of the Privilege,
- students may earn no more than 12 graduate credit hours while completing baccalaureate requirements.
- courses taken for graduate credit cannot be used to satisfy undergraduate requirements.
- students retain their undergraduate status until they receive the baccalaureate degree.
- While in the concurrent undergraduate/graduate status, students all maintain a minimum cumulative graduate grade point average of 3.0.
This arrangement is to be considered a special privilege to outstanding graduating seniors and does not imply admission to the Doré School of Graduate Studies.
