Graduate Credit for Winthrop University Seniors
Winthrop seniors with an overall grade-point average at Winthrop of 3.0 or better may be permitted to take courses numbered 500-599 for graduate credit during their final semester of undergraduate work, provided the total course load (undergraduate and graduate) for that semester does not exceed 16 semester hours. The student may receive graduate credit for these courses only if the requirements for the baccalaureate degree are satisfactorily completed by the end of that same semester.
Senior accounting students in their final term may take one 600-level accounting class if the student meets the following conditions:
1. Admitted to graduate studies for the MBA Accounting Option;
2. Limited to one 600-level accounting course;
3. A 3.0 undergraduate grade-point average; and
4. Limited to maximum load of 16 semester hours.
Undergraduate students who wish to take courses for graduate credit must receive specific approval from the academic dean of the college in which they are majoring. Approval applications are available in the Records and Registration Office, 126 Tillman.
