Undergraduate seniors who have a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.2 on all undergraduate work attempted may be allowed to register for graduate credit if they meet the following criteria listed in the University of Louisiana System regulations for students desiring concurrent enrollment in baccalaureate and master's degree programs. Students not meeting undergraduate preparatory requirements will not be eligible for this program.

  • Student must provide a minimum of 2 letters of reference along with a graduate application and application fee.
  • Student lacks no more than 21 semester hours to complete baccalaureate degree requirements.
  • Student may earn no more than 12 graduate credit hours while completing baccalaureate requirements.


The choice of courses must have the approval of a graduate faculty advisor of the student's choosing, the Non-thesis Committee chair, or the Graduate Coordinator.


  • Courses taken for graduate credit cannot be used to satisfy undergraduate requirements.
  • The student retains the undergraduate status until he/she is awarded the baccalaureate degree.

At the time of matriculation from the baccalaureate program and upon application to the graduate program, students enrolled in the Baccalaureate and Master's Concurrent Enrollment Program will be required to meet the same admission requirements as other applicants to The Office of Research and Graduate Studies. Students seeking admission to a Master's program, other than the program in which they were granted concurrent enrollment, must meet the same admission requirements as other applicants to the program to which they are seeking admission. GRE and GMAT scores will be waived for students admitted to the Baccalaureate and Master's Concurrent Enrollment Program provided they continue to pursue the degree for which they were initially admitted and maintain all other conditions to retain graduate status.
