Excess Undergraduate Credits --- counting the course towards Graduate School

Seniors in their last year as an undergraduate, can take a graduate level course to count towards their graduate career in the upcoming years.  However, these courses can NOT count towards their BS degree. These courses must be in excess of the undergraduate degree requirements.

The regulations state the following:

•  the student must take the class as a senior

•  must receive a grade of B or better
