From MWSU Graduate School Policy Portal
Graduate courses will have a designated 500 or 600-level number.
500-level designation will be used for graduate courses which have a cross-listed 400 level equivalent undergraduate course. 500-level graduate courses must have additional academic components required beyond the 400-level cross-listed course as described in the course syllabus.
600-level designation is used for graduate-only courses.
Whether or not the course description lists it as a prerequisite, all graduate level courses (500+) can only be taken by students admitted to the Graduate School. Senior undergraduate students desiring to take courses for graduate credit may take up to six total credit hours of graduate-level courses (500 level) for graduate credit during only the last two semesters before receiving the bachelor’s degree, provided they are admitted as Non-Degree Seeking Students.
