Admission of Last-Semester Seniors
Seniors in residence at ISU, with permission of the Graduate School, may register for no more than six graduate credits during the semester or summer session in which they will complete the work for a bachelor's degree at ISU. This option is reserved for outstanding seniors who are seriously considering attending ISU for Graduate School. The option must be approved not only by the Graduate School but the student's advisor, the department chairperson, and the course instructor. Only courses numbered 500-599 may be taken with this option. If a senior admitted to graduate study under this provision fails to complete graduate requirements for a bachelor's degree, all graduate credits earned revert to undergraduate credit. The student's load, including both graduate and undergraduate credit, may not exceed 16 credits or nine credits in the case of summer school. As soon as possible after selecting this option, a senior must file an Application for Admission to the Graduate School.
