Please note:

Students who have applied to a graduate program are allowed to enroll in no more that two courses (6 hours maximum) in their respective programs while their application is still under consideration. Taking these six hours does not automatically constitute acceptance into a program. Students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in these courses. Once a student is admitted into a program, these 6 hours may be considered as transfer credit if the courses relate to the program area and were taken within the last five years. A grade of “C” will not transfer.
