Seniors Taking Graduate Courses

UW-Whitewater undergraduate students with senior status may be allowed to complete up to nine graduate units at UW-Whitewater provided they have completed at least 90 semester units with at least a 2.75 overall grade point average (or 2.90 over the last half of their course work), have the written recommendation of the department chairperson of their undergraduate major and have a graduate application on file in the Graduate Studies Office. The application can be found at: https://apply.wisconsin.edu/.

Eligibility for this privilege must be established with the graduate program coordinator and Graduate Studies Office and is not available to seniors at other institutions or students who already possess a bachelor's degree. Seniors may not use graduate-level units to satisfy requirements for the bachelor's degree, and undergraduate fees will be charged for their graduate-level work.

N/A
This request will streamline the ability of seniors to take 3-12 credits of graduate work while an undergraduate student. This will be used as an incentive for students to continue their graduate education either at UW-W or at another university.
