Are you a PSU undergraduate student who is considering pursuing a graduate degree? Consider this: People with master’s degrees earn an average of 19 percent more per year than those with a bachelor’s degree, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
PSU students, who are in their senior year and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, may be eligible to take up to six graduate credits that can be counted toward a PSU bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree at PSU or elsewhere.
Registering for Graduate Courses
Complete a Student Request form asking permission to take a graduate course and to be allowed to count those credits for both undergraduate and graduate credit. Sign the form, obtain required signatures and submit it to the Undergraduate Studies Office for associate vice president for Undergraduate Studies’s review and approval.
In addition to a Student Request Form, students must complete a graduate registration form. Both completed forms are required prior to registration. Registration is dependent upon availability in the class.
To ensure that you do not encounter any course delays, you may want to start this process the semester before you want to take a graduate course.
Fall and Spring Terms: The cost of the graduate class is covered by undergraduate tuition for full-time students (enrolled in 12-17 credits). Part-time students pay the graduate tuition rate, plus registration fee at the time of registration.
Summer and Winter Terms: All students pay the graduate tuition rate, plus registration fee at the time of registration.
