A senior who is within 30 semester hours of completing requirements for the bachelors degree at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga may apply for admission to graduate courses if the applicant has an overall grade point average of 3.0 (B) or higher and is recommended by the head of his or her major department. Subject to the approval of the director of the Graduate School, a student may earn up to nine semester hours of graduate credit prior to completing the bachelors degree. Such approval must be obtained each semester by completing the special application form which is available in the Graduate School Office. The approved application must be submitted to the Registration Office prior to the time of registration. Courses taken for graduate credit may not be applied toward an undergraduate degree.
Students seeking initial licensure are encouraged to apply for the master's program in Initial Licensure. Those seeking endorsement or renewal of licensure may be classified as non-degree students.
Post-baccalaureate is an undergraduate admission classification which indicates that the applicant has a baccalaureate degree. A student in this category may take only undergraduate courses.
Post-baccalaureate students with bachelors degrees from regionally accredited colleges or universities who are seeking undergraduate UTC degrees are not subject to UTC general education requirements. They are subject to major requirements, including general education courses specifically required for the major. Post-baccalaureate students who are not seeking a UTC degree also do not need to meet UTC general education requirements.
Admission as a post-baccalaureate student does not guarantee admission to a degree program. In addition, courses completed under post-baccalaureate admission do not count toward a graduate degree. Students wishing to take courses in this category must apply for admission in the Graduate School Office.
Second Bachelors Degree
Students desiring a second bachelors degree must apply for readmission through the Adult Services Center. A student may receive a second bachelors degree provided that all specific requirements for both degrees are met. See Degree Requirements for description of all requirements.
