Entry Requirements

At this point, provisional status is automatically changed to unconditional. Any deficiencies assigned to the graduate student must be completed at the undergraduate level and will not appear as graduate credit. If the student is required to complete undergraduate deficiencies, a formal change of status from provisional to unconditional must be initiated by the student's advisor at the request of the student
