As such work is not guided by a Plan of Study or approved by a faculty adviser, no more than nine semester credit hours of course work taken while a non-degree seeking student may be used on a Plan of Study to meet requirements for a graduate degree or certificate program. In addition, only three semester credit hours of course work taken while a non-degree seeking student may be used on a Plan of Study toward an MBA degree. Non-degree seeking students may not enroll in more than nine hours of courses eligible for graduate credit without permission of the dean of the Graduate College or his/her designee. To ensure that non-degree seeking students do not inadvertently exceed this limitation, an enrollment hold will be placed on each student in this status after the student has registered for six or more hours. This hold may be removed by the Graduate College once the student has formally re-acknowledged this nine-hour limitation.
