An ODU undergraduate degree-seeking student with senior standing and a 3.3 or better grade point average in the major field of study may be allowed to take up to 12 hours of graduate course work for graduate credit. Up to 6 hours of graduate credit taken prior to completing the undergraduate degree may be applied toward the undergraduate degree. The graduate credit may be used as a substitution for required undergraduate courses only with the approval of the department chair or chief departmental advisor of the student's undergraduate program. All graduate hours applied to the undergraduate degree will be counted in the undergraduate grade point average, will appear on the undergraduate transcript, and will be used to determine graduation with honors. The combined undergraduate and graduate hours taken during any semester must not exceed 18. Contact the GPIS Director for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
