Registration procedures are established by the Office of the Registrar. Registration is accomplished via the Internet. Class schedules and registration policies are posted on the University Registrar's web pages. Courses carrying graduate credit are those listed at the 500, 600, or 700 levels. Many courses listed on the 500 level are open to undergraduates as well as graduate students (undergraduates enroll in corresponding 400 numbered courses). The courses listed at or above the 600 level are open only to graduate students. Courses at the 700 level are available only to students admitted to a doctoral program. Graduate students registering for at least six graduate level credits during a semester are defined as full-time graduate students at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
All students wishing to take graduate level courses must complete and submit an Application for Admission to the College of Graduate Studies and Research. Graduate students enrolled in 500 level courses that are also listed at the 400 level will be required to demonstrate graduate level work in the testing process and/or through additional class assignments as required by the instructor, department, and the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
An undergraduate of Minnesota State University, Mankato who has 6 semester credits or fewer remaining on a bachelor's degree and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better for the last 60 semester credits may, with the consent of the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research, be permitted to register for graduate work to complete a normal load. Usually, no more than two graduate courses may be taken under these circumstances. Forms initiating this procedure are available in the College of Graduate Studies and Research. MSU undergraduate students permitted to register for graduate credits are considered as undergraduate students until they complete all undergraduate degree requirements. They are not eligible for graduate student financial aid or for graduate assistantships.
Students enrolled in courses must fulfill tuition and fee payment obligations by the published deadlines or they will be dropped from all registered courses.
