Undergraduates Taking Graduate Level Courses

Undergraduates may take graduate courses, provided they meet the standards set down by each college: e.g., senior standing (in terms of credits, not in terms of years at Villanova), grade point average, and appropriate permissions (advisor, assistant dean, chair). Undergraduates may take a maximum of two graduate courses in any semester. If an undergraduate takes a graduate class, in that semester the student is limited to taking a maximum of 16 credit-hours of work. Further restrictions and the full policy can be found on the Provost website.
