Undergraduate Catalog 2016-2017

Concurrent Undergraduate-Graduate Registration

An undergraduate degree seeking student at the University of Maryland may, with the approval of his or her Dean, the department and the instructor offering the course, and of the Graduate School, register for graduate courses (600 level and above) that will be recorded as for graduate credit only and that may be applied towards an advanced degree at this university or elsewhere. Students eligible for this option normally will have achieved junior standing, will have a GPA of at least 3.0, and will have successfully completed the prerequisite courses with a grade of "B-" or better. The student must submit a plan of study that shows that taking graduate courses will not unduly delay completion of requirements for the bachelor's degree. The total of graduate and undergraduate credits attempted in any semester may not be more than eighteen. The graduate credits so earned will not count towards any of the requirements for the Baccalaureate degree. A maximum of twelve credits may be taken for graduate credit by a student while enrolled as an undergraduate.
