No one is permitted to attend a class for which he or she has not been properly registered. Credit is accumulated on the basis of quarter hours. Currently the College of Communication does not allow students to audit graduate coursework.
Students are not permitted to take graduate classes as pass/fail. They must earn a letter grade in all coursework. Grades of "D" and "F" are failing grades and will not count towards the completion of the degree. If a course is repeated, all of the grades are recorded on the academic record and calculated in the GPA.
Students enrolled for eight or more quarter hours of credit are considered full-time. Those enrolled for less are considered part-time. For students fully employed, registration for two courses in a term is the suggested maximum.
Coursework taken within six years of the student's first date of enrollment will be considered in awarding the final degree.
College of Communication graduate programs vary with regard to the number of transferred credit hours allowed. Students must have earned a B or better in courses in order for credit to be transferred. The courses must have been taken in the last five years.
