Reservation of coursework for graduate credit

Graduate-level coursework taken while working toward a student’s first bachelor’s degree can be reserved for use in a PSU graduate program. Only credits earned at PSU can be reserved for graduate credit. Reserved graduate credit is limited to 12 completed graduate credits letter-graded B- or higher earned within the last 45 credits prior to awarding of the student’s first bachelor’s degree and not used to fulfill the requirements for any bachelor’s degree. Such courses are pre-admission credits and subject to all pre-admission requirements and limitations. Departments may have stricter limitations.

Use of reserved credits is requested via a DARS exception submitted to the Graduate School. This request should be made soon after admission to the graduate program.
