Seniors and Graduate Study (Coenrollment)

Applies to: 

Undergraduate Students

Policy Statement: 

Seniors at KU who will complete the requirements for a baccalaureate degree in a given semester, and who have very strong academic records (grade-point average higher than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale), must apply and be admitted provisionally  as degree-seeking students and request the permission of the appropriate Graduate Division to co-enroll for the final undergraduate semester. Seniors requesting the privilege of co-enrollment must make formal application through the graduate affairs office of the appropriate school or college.


To meet the criteria of co-enrollment, the student must earn undergraduate credit for at least one class during the co-enrollment semester. Continuing education courses may be used to satisfy this requirement. If after the co-enrollment semester the baccalaureate degree is not completed, the student will not be permitted to enroll in courses for graduate credit until the baccalaureate degree has been conferred. After one semester, students are not eligible for co-enrollment and graduate admission will be retracted.Students who are eligible to co-enroll receive an email from the Registrar’s Office before enrollment with instructions on how to enroll in more than one career (ex. LAW, GRDL-Graduate, UGDL- Undergraduate). Students will have separate appointment times to enroll for each career and must enroll only in the courses that will count correctly toward the career in which they are enrolling during each appointment time. When enrollment is complete for each career, students must check the grading option for each course to ensure the class will be counted correctly.
