Students pursuing a concurrent bachelors/master’s degree will be automatically changed to graduate status after the completion of 130 credit hours (or 145 credit hours for a student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science). The Title IV Higher Education regulations require that an institution determine when a student has progressed from undergraduate to graduate status.
The minimum completion of 130 credit hours includes credits taken towards academic load from a student’s undergraduate work (which includes classes graded with an I or IP, as well as in-progress units) and transfer units (including AP credit).
Graduate students are assessed graduate tuition rates and if receiving financial aid are considered “independent” once reaching graduate status.
To appeal the automatic change to graduate status, you must submit the Concurrent Bachelor Appeal Form to the Office of the Registrar with the following additional information:
Appeals will only be approved for extenuating circumstances that result in the student’s inability to make progress towards a degree.
No exceptions can be made for financial reasons (e.g. loss of aid, higher graduate tuition rates, etc.)
If you intend to graduate in December 2013, be sure to complete all the items below by the dates listed.
Do you need an enrollment verification for Fall 2013? Good news! You can now obtain one without a trip to the Registrar’s office!
