Graduate-Level Coursework

Only in rare circumstances should an undergraduate student be enrolled in a graduate-level course. Graduate courses may not be applied to any degree requirement of a Bachelor’s degree without prior special permission of the Dean, and this special permission is limited to a maximum of 12 credit hours of graduate course work. Students interested in such permission should obtain a petition form from the Recorder’s Office and should consult with the instructor of the graduate course in which they wish to enroll as well as the director of undergraduate studies in their major before submitting the petition to the College for approval. Graduate courses taken while an undergraduate and counted toward the requirements of a Bachelor’s degree may not count toward a graduate degree at Indiana University (and may also not count toward graduate degrees at other universities).
