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 the undergraduate preparatory requirements will not be eligible for this program. The criteria are:

  1. Student must obtain written approval of the appropriate graduate director/coordinator, academic dean, and the Dean of the Graduate School.
  2. Student must provide a minimum of two letters of reference along with a graduate application and application fee. [$40.00 American / $40.00 International].
  3. Student lacks no more than 30 semester hours to complete baccalaureate degree requirements.
  4. Student may earn no more than 12 graduate credit hours while completing baccalaureate requirements.
  5. Courses taken for graduate credit cannot be used to satisfy undergraduate requirements.
  6. The student retains the undergraduate status until he/she is awarded the baccalaureate degree.
  7. While in the concurrent program, the student shall maintain a minimum cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0.
  8. Students admitted to the concurrent program are expected to enroll in graduate level courses.

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 Graduate School.

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. GMAT scores will be waived for students admitted to the 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.

Students pay a $40.00 American/ $40.00 International application fee when they apply for admission to the Concurrent Program. Upon completion of the Baccalaureate degree the student will complete an application to Graduate School for admission into the Master's Degree Program. The student will not be charged another $40.00/$40.00 application fee.
