Senior Rule

While you are a senior, and if you have room in your schedule, you may take credits and reserve them for a “graduate transcript” making the credits available for possible use toward a future graduate degree. Credits taken under “Senior Rule” may not apply to your undergraduate degree.  It is up to your future graduate program whether the credits will be accepted or not.
