Undergraduate Students Petitioning to Take Graduate Courses
Students matriculated in undergraduate programs at St. John Fisher College may be eligible to take graduate classes at the College.
Students interested in pursuing this option should meet with the graduate program director to discuss their interest, qualifications, and plans to pursue the graduate degree. If deemed appropriate, the student must complete the appropriate Petition to Take Graduate Classes form and obtain the required approvals. If approved, the undergraduate student may take up to two graduate courses (maximum six credits).
To be eligible to enroll in a graduate course, undergraduate students must have an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher and have completed at least 90 undergraduate credits.
These courses carry graduate credit and are taken in addition to those required to earn the baccalaureate degree at St. John Fisher College. Participation does not guarantee acceptance into the graduate program after completion of the baccalaureate degree. Registration will be on a space-available basis and is determined the week before classes begin.
For students already attending full-time as undergraduates (12 credits or more) and paying the prevailing full-time tuition, the tuition charge for the graduate courses will be waived. Students attending part-time (11 credits or less) will pay the prevailing per-credit graduate tuition for the graduate course.
Exception: Matriculated undergraduate nursing students may petition to take an approved GNUR graduate course for undergraduate credit. The completed course will appear on the undergraduate transcript until the graduate program is begun, at which time the course(s) will also appear on the graduate transcript.
