300-499 series - Advanced undergraduate courses which may be used in meeting part of the requirements for graduate degrees in accordance with the policy on converted credit.

These courses are not listed in this catalog, but are listed in the General Catalog (Undergraduate Catalog).

NOTE: When credits in the 300-499 series are applied to a graduate program, they are entered on the transcript without notation. It is doubtful, therefore, that they could be transferred as graduate credit to another institution.

500-599 series- Entry level graduate courses (may be dual listed with a 400 level undergraduate course and may include limited enrollment by undergraduates). See below.

600-699 series- Graduate level courses.

These courses are open to SDSU senior students for graduate credit if they meet the following requirements:

  1. Within 15 credits of completing a Bachelor’s degree;
  2. Have an overall grade point average of 2.5 or higher, or a Junior-Senior grade point average of 3.0 or higher;
  3. Enroll for no more than 18 credits, undergraduate and graduate credits combined (9 credits during Summer Term);
  4. The course(s) cannot be required, or included, for the Bachelor’s degree
  5. A signed permit is required. These courses are approved as graduate credit and undergraduate students must meet the same level of performance as graduate students.

700-799 series- Graduate level courses open only to graduate students.

800-899 series- Doctoral and post-doctoral level courses open only to doctoral students or those holding an earned doctoral degree.

Experimental Courses - Courses at the 500-800 levels ending in 98 or 99 are experimental and may be active for two years from the date of the first offering, at which time they end or must become permanent courses.
