Special Towards M.B.A. or M.A. Students
Applicants to the M.B.A. Program who fulfill the admission requirements but hold an undergraduate degree other than Business Administration, are admitted as special towards M.B.A. and required to take prerequisite/core courses of the Program before taking graduate courses.
Applicants to the M.A. Program who fulfill the admission requirements but hold undergraduate degrees other than in Psychology or Education, are admitted as special towards M.A. and required to take Psychology or Education courses assigned by the Graduate Committee before taking graduate courses.
Students who possess a Bachelor’s degree may wish to enroll in graduate courses without intending to obtain a Master’s degree. These students may enroll in no more than six semester hours upon submission of a graduate application. Their courses count toward professional growth and in-service education only. Any change of status (Special to Regular) will be made by a petition to the Admissions Committee. Credit for courses taken prior to change of status will count toward a degree only by the approval of the Graduate Studies Committee on condition that the student has fulfilled the admission requirements of the University at the time of admission as a special student. Courses which are selected by a student who has not been officially admitted and assigned a program counselor cannot count towards a degree. The University cannot be held responsible for the student’s selection of such courses.
