DEAN’S APPROVAL OF REQUIREMENT EXCEPTIONS:
Approved Disapproved | No Exceptions Exist
I acknowledge that it is required that I earn a minimum grade of “B” in all graduate-level coursework. As applicable, I must still apply and be
admitted to the graduate program as a 4+1 student before I am considered a graduate student. I understand that no more than 12 credit hours
of graduate coursework taken as an undergraduate can be counted towards a graduate degree. Only 6 of these 12 credits can also be used
towards the undergraduate degree. Permission to enroll in graduate coursework or the 4+1 program is not a guarantee of graduate program
admission.Students retain their undergraduate student status until they graduate with their Bachelor’s degree, apply for, and are admitted to a
graduate degree program. I certify that all answers and statements are true and complete to the best of my knowledge.
** The Dean should sign all petitions as acknowledgement of review. For any exceptions to the requirements, the Dean’s approval
is required and approval box should be checked as appropriate or that no exceptions exist regarding petition.
