To register for a graduate-level course, a student is required at the time of registration to hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. For a student to receive credit for a graduate course, the official undergraduate transcript with bachelor’s degree posted must be on file in the Office of Graduate Admission. This is required for non-matriculated as well as matriculated students. If the transcript is not on file at the time of registration, the student must have it sent directly to the Office of Graduate Admission from the degree-granting institution before mid-semester. Transcripts, credit for the course, and permission to register for the next semester will be withheld if the undergraduate transcript is not received as required.
Russell Sage College seniors may be admitted to graduate courses on a strictly controlled basis requiring written permission from the appropriate graduate school dean.
