Correspondence Course Credit
A maximum of nine semester units of correspondence credit may be applied toward an Azusa Pacific University degree. Students must receive prior approval from the APS Office of the Registrar.
Graduate Courses Taken by Undergraduate Students
An undergraduate student may enroll in a graduate course only if:
- The student is a senior with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
- The department chair of the student's major approves.
- The request is submitted with the form provided by One Stop.
A qualified undergraduate student is not limited in the number of graduate courses they may take.
Graduate courses taken by an undergraduate student may not apply toward an APU graduate degree unless the grade received in the graduate course is 3.0 or higher. No more than eight graduate units earned as an undergraduate student may be counted toward an APU graduate degree. Some departments may allow fewer units to be counted. A student who will be applying to an APU graduate program should obtain information from the appropriate department before taking graduate courses.
If a student gets behind and needs to withdraw from a course or the program, they should first, let their professor and the director know immediately. There may be an option to take an incomplete grade in that course. The program is designed in a lock-step format, meaning courses typically follow in sequence and build upon each other. While there are some exceptions, a student will usually retake the course the next time it is offered either online of face to face. If it becomes necessary to withdraw from a course, students must immediately communicate to the School of Nursing to avoid financial impact. The School of Nursing will assist them to determine the best approach for them academically, personally, and financially.
