100 Level Courses

100 Level Coursework For Graduate Degrees

It is sometimes the situation where graduate students would like to take a course which provides them with introductory material to assist them in bridging their previous training at the undergraduate level with their current program of study in graduate school.  At the PhD level, students will be allowed to take one 100 level course under the dean’s tuition scholarship.  This requires justification for the necessity of the course for the student’s training.  Additional coursework is allowed, but tuition must be covered by the department.  These courses do not count towards the 90 credits required for the PhD degree and should not be included on the program of study submitted to the graduate school.  At the Master’s level, tuition for 100 level courses will be covered by the student.  Students are also able to audit undergraduate courses with the approval of the faculty member teaching the course.
