Qualified students may take some graduate courses as part of their CUNY BA undergraduate program. Policies about admission of undergraduates into graduate courses vary from campus to campus and from discipline to discipline; students must comply with those policies. Students are required to obtain permission from the professor teaching the course they wish to take.
You must also obtain CUNY BA’s permission to take graduate-level courses; permission is granted to students who have GPAs of at least 3.00, no open grades, and have their mentor-approved Area(s) of Concentration on file with CUNY BA.
If you are applying for graduate-level courses at your home college, use this form. Otherwise, use the CUNY ePermit system; CUNY BA’s approval of the ePermit serves as the program’s approval to take the course.
Any student who receives an incomplete grade in a graduate level course must successfully complete the course in order to be eligible to graduate. CUNY BA records will not be finalized with any open grades.
Students taking courses at the CUNY Graduate Center should get proof of registration and obtain a Graduate Center ID card so that they can have borrowing access to the library and a computer account.
