Graduate Studies

Policies

Unofficial Course Attendance

Full-time graduate students and post-docs are allowed to sit in on graduate classes with the approval of the faculty member teaching the course. All other students (i.e., non-matriculated and part-time students) require permission from the Dean of Graduate Studies in order to sit in on classes. When such permission is granted, these students may not participate fully in the class. This means that non-matriculated and part-time students who sit in on a class may not take exams and may not receive an “unofficial” grade for the course. In no case will retroactive credit be provided to a student who sits in on classes.
