To be eligible to take graduate courses, students must be either
applying to, or continuing a graduate program, or be a non-degree graduate
Admission to 700- or 800-level courses is restricted to students who have been admitted to one of TU's graduate programs.
Some courses at the 500 and 600 level are open to graduate students. Non-degree students who have already earned a master's degree (post baccalaureate) may be eligible for 700-level courses and should seek written permission from the appropriate academic department.
500- through 800-level courses may not be taken under pass option.
If you have a master's or other advanced degree from an accredited college, you may take any level course. However, before you can register for 700-level courses, the institution(s) you attended must send official transcripts to the TU Graduate School.

All new graduate students who wish to take courses at the graduate level must submit a Graduate
