Graduate Course Numbers

Graduate courses at Fredonia are numbered 500-599 and 600-699. Under exceptional circumstances, a maximum of 6 credit hours of 300- or 400-level courses outside the major area of specialization may be included. The recommendation of the faculty advisor and the approval of the department chairperson, Dean of the College of Education (education majors only), and the Associate Provost for Graduate Studies is required prior to the student's enrollment in the course. Undergraduate courses taken in the major area of specialization will not receive graduate credit.

Courses numbered 600-699 are advanced graduate courses open to graduate students only. Qualified undergraduates who have completed 90 credit hours with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 may be allowed to enroll in graduate courses numbered 500-599.

With the approval of the Associate Provost for Graduate Studies, qualified undergraduates may apply to enroll in a limited number of 500-level graduate courses, either for credit to be applied to their undergraduate programs or toward a Fredonia graduate program they enter at a later time. In the latter case, a student will be charged the difference between undergraduate and graduate tuition when the credit is applied to the graduate transcript.

Permission of the chairperson of the department offering the course and approval of the Associate Provost for Graduate Studies Office is required. The form is available at the following web address:

Courses may not be used for both undergraduate and graduate credit. Undergraduates are not allowed to enroll in courses numbered above 599.
