Graduate courses

Graduate courses are included in the section of Course Descriptions in the Bulletin. For a description of the program leading to a Master of Science Degree at Rose-Hulman, see the Graduate Bulletin.

An undergraduate student who wishes to take 12 hours or less of graduate courses may do so, subject to the following conditions.

  1. The student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.000 or better.
  2. The class must be included in the list of courses approved by the Graduate Studies Committee for graduate credit (see Graduate Bulletin).
  3. The course may not be used to satisfy requirements for the B.S. degree.
  4. The student must request permission to receive graduate credit prior to enrollment in the course. To do this, the student must obtain a Graduate Credit Enrollment Form from the Registrar's Office and fill it out. The Form must be submitted for endorsement by the student's advisor, the instructor, and for approval by the Director of Graduate Studies. A separate form should be submitted for each course in which the undergraduate desires to enroll for graduate credit. The student, the advisor, and the instructor will be notified of the decision of the Director of Graduate Studies by the Registrar.

The student's official graduate transcript will show that the course was taken for graduate credit at Rose-Hulman. However, it must be understood that this does not constitute acceptance to any graduate school, nor does it guarantee that the course will be accepted for graduate credit toward any graduate degree plan. An undergraduate student who wishes to take more than 12 hours of graduate courses must enroll in the graduate program.

For information on this option see, Concurrent Pursuance of the B.S. and M.S. Degrees.
