Undergraduates Enrolling in Graduate Courses

Students who have completed more than 106 credits by end of previous semester at Buffalo State may register for graduate-level courses if they have maintained a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. A maximum of 6 graduate credit hours may be taken as a senior. The combined enrollment of undergraduate and graduate courses should not exceed 15 hours per semester.

Courses taken in this manner are related to a graduate program of study and will not apply toward an undergraduate degree. These courses may be applied toward an advanced degree if they are acceptable to the department. The six-year time limitation on the completion of the master’s degree program applies to these as well as other credits.

An undergraduate request to enroll in a graduate course must be made by contacting the academic department offering the course. Permission must be granted by the instructor and department chair.
