Students who have previous course work at the undergraduate or graduate level can request to take an upper level course in the same area as the core course. The upper level course must be taken on a graded basis. To request advanced placement, students should submit the advanced placement form on the Forms & Paradigms page. Unless otherwise noted, the advanced placement form should go to the faculty chair for the division of the course the student would like to take.
Course Overload Request
If you are considering enrolling in more than 4 courses, this is considered an overload, and you will need permission from Dean Conklin-Miller to do this. Factors that are considered in granting permission include, but are not limited to, non-credit courses during the upcoming semester and the student's academic record, e.g. spiritual formation, field education, and incomplete coursework from previous semesters. To request an overload, please fill out this form: Course Overload Request Form
Factors that are considered in granting an overload request include:
- Your year in school: First-semester students are not able to take a fifth course. Secnod semester students cannot be granted an overload until their grades are in from the first semester.
- Your grade point average: Students generally must have a GPA over a 3.0, although extenuating circumstances will be considered.
- Your transcript: A student with incompletes from the previous semester will not be allowed to enroll in a fifth course.
Note: You do not need permission to audit a fifth course. You do need permission to take a fifth course for a grade or on a pass/fail basis.
