Cross-Disciplinary Enrollments 

Depending on individual graduate program requirements, a student may request to take a graduate-level course offered by another department outside the student’s program. Access to such courses is limited on a space-available basis and subject to program director prior approval. However, no more than eight (8) credit hours may be substituted outside the program’s disciplinary base. 


Studying French 

Full-time graduate students may apply to audit one French course per semester. Graduate students who wish to study French may audit one undergraduate course per semester at no additional cost (fall/spring semesters). A placement exam is required to determine the appropriate level. Access to French courses is on a space-available basis. As French is a participatory course, AUP attendance policy applies to French course audits. 

Current graduate students may request to participate in the French Immersion program offered each summer as an auditor. A reduced rate is charged for the immersion, plus a nominal fee to cover the costs of the coffee/croissant break.
