Taking Courses Outside Of Your Academic Career

Undergraduate students may enroll in a graduate level course if they receive permission from the Graduate School. Graduate students may enroll in an undergraduate level course if they have met the prerequisites for it. In both of these cases, students are eligible to receive a letter grade for coursework taken outside of their career. The course taken outside of a student's career will appear on their transcript with the grade they received and the number of credits associated with the course, however, the grade is not factored into their semester GPA or cumulative GPA and the credits are not included in any of the transcript earned credit totals.

In regards to transferring the course credit from one career to another:

  • If you are a student who wants to apply graduate work completed during your undergraduate career towards a graduate degree, please contact the Graduate School by calling (775) 784-6869
  • If you are a student who wants to apply undergraduate work completed during your graduate career towards an undergraduate degree, please contact your academic advisor

The following are sample transcripts of undergraduate students who have taken graduate courses.  Note that although the graduate coursework is accounted for in their "Attempted Credits" for the term and career, it is not factored in their "Earned Credits."
