Preparation for Graduate Work
Students planning to continue in graduate programs should take advantage of the flexibility in many undergraduate programs to design an upper-division curriculum that meets requirements in the anticipated graduate program.
The policies of the colleges provides as much flexibility as possible for students who wish to change to new but related fields of study after the baccalaureate degree. Students should consult with their previous program adviser and the department representative of the new field to establish an academic program that will remedy any deficiencies in background.
Graduate Courses. Qualified undergraduates may petition the graduate committee to register for 400-level courses if they are certified by the course instructor and the department chairperson concerned.
