Graduate Course Registration

Advanced undergraduates who are within 30 hours of completing the baccalaureate degree may petition their ADU to take graduate courses. If approved, these courses can be applied toward satisfying undergraduate degree requirements or can be designated for future application toward a graduate degree requirement at U.T. Dallas. The student must declare at the time of registration for the course, on a form provided by the ADU, how each approved course is to be applied. Approvals will be subject to the conditions outlined in the following sections.

Graduate Courses Applied Toward an Undergraduate Degree

With the approval of the student’s ADU, up to 12 semester hours of graduate work taken as an undergraduate may be used for completing any baccalaureate degree at U.T. Dallas. Pass/fail grading will be permitted in this category but must be approved by the instructor prior to the start of class.

Graduate Courses for Possible Future Use as Graduate Credit

Undergraduates may take up to 12 semester hours of graduate courses to reserve for possible application toward a graduate degree. To register, undergraduate students must obtain permission from the instructor and from the graduate advisor of the program in which the course is offered. Such courses with an earned grade of B or better will be eligible for application to the student’s graduate record when the student is admitted to a graduate program. Courses so taken will not apply to the student’s undergraduate record and will not affect the student’s undergraduate GPA.

Graduate Courses Taken in Fast Track Options

A number of programs at U.T. Dallas offer an accelerated Fast Track option that allows students to take graduate level classes while still undergraduates. Specific admission requirements for Fast Track programs can be found within descriptions of majors. Undergraduate students at U.T. Dallas who have been admitted to Fast Track programs at U.T. Dallas leading to baccalaureate/master’s degrees may, with the permission of the ADU and graduate advisor, take a maximum of 15 specified semester hours of graduate work as an undergraduate. The graduate hours may be used to complete the bachelor’s degree and also to satisfy requirements for the master’s degree. Exceptions to the 15-hour maximum may be granted by petition to the Deans of Graduate and Undergraduate Education submitted through the relevant program’s director of graduate studies.

Graduate programs at U.T. Dallas will accept admission to a Fast Track program as satisfying Graduate Record Exam (GRE) criteria for admission to the graduate program. The School of Management requires students to meet its graduate admission requirements including completion of the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree.
