3.25. Undergraduate Students Taking Graduate Courses

An undergraduate student who is pursuing a baccalaureate degree at Alfaisal University may be granted permission to take one or more (maximum of nine credit-hours) graduate courses if the student meets all the following conditions:

  1. The student must have completed at least 90 credit hours.
  2. The student must have an overall grade point of 3.00 or better.
  3. The student must have a 3.00 or better grade-point average in the major field.
  4. The student must obtain permission from his/her adviser, college Dean, the instructor of the course, and Office of Research & Graduate Studies via signature on the Undergraduate Request for Graduate Course form.

An undergraduate student who is deficient in any of the above respects may not take a graduate course. Undergraduate students may not register for 600- to 800-level graduate courses.

Credit for these courses, up to a maximum of nine credits for courses where the grade received is B or above, may be applied at a later point to a graduate degree program provided that the credits were not used to satisfy baccalaureate degree requirements. Internal transfer of credits is subject to the Office of Research & Graduate Studies transfer credit regulations.
