The University reserves the right to change course offerings at any time.

A student who lacks the stated prerequisites for a course may be permitted to enroll by the Instructor. Such students must inform the instructor that they lack the prerequisites, and the instructor will make appropriate efforts to ascertain that they are properly qualified. Students enrolled who do not meet the prerequisites of a course may be disenrolled from that course. The instructor will notify the Office of the Registrar of this action.

About UVM Courses - Information for Graduate Students

Courses numbered from 001 to 099 are introductory courses. Under no circumstance will graduate credit be allowed for a course numbered below 100.

Courses numbered 100 to 199 are intermediate courses, and may not be taken for graduate credit except upon the recommendation of a student's Studies Committee and with the authorization of the Dean of the Graduate College prior to enrollment. Graduate programs designed for the Master of Science for Teachers degree (MST) are exempted from this rule. Non-degree students are not permitted to receive graduate credit for courses numbered 100 to 199.

Courses numbered 200 to 299 are advanced courses. An advanced course presents concepts, results, or arguments which are only accessible to students who have taken courses in the discipline (or, occasionally, in a related discipline) at the introductory and intermediate levels. Prior acquaintance with the basic concepts of the subject and with some special areas of the subject will be assumed. An advanced course will always have a minimum prerequisite of three hours of prior study at the intermediate level in the discipline, or in a related discipline, or some specified equivalent preparation. Not all 200-level courses are eligible for graduate credit. Courses numbered 200 to 299 that are not approved for graduate credit may not be taken for graduate credit except upon the recommendation of a student's Studies Committee and with the authorization of the Dean of the Graduate College prior to enrollment.

Authorization to enroll in courses numbered 100 to 199, or courses numbered 200 to 299 that are not eligible for graduate credit, will be limited to one appropriate course (three credit hours) for a master's program and two appropriate courses (six credit hours) for a doctoral program. Graduate students may take additional 100-level or 200-level courses beyond those values, but graduate credit will not be allowed for such courses.

The 200-level courses that are eligible for graduate credit are included in the Graduate Catalogue course list. Graduate students enrolled in a 200-level course approved for graduate credit must take the course for graduate credit. To obtain graduate credit, the graduate student generally is expected to meet higher qualitative and/or quantitative expectations than the undergraduate student.

Courses numbered 300 to 399 are generally limited to graduate students unless permission to enroll is given by the appropriate instructor, department or program.

Courses numbered 400 or above are limited to candidates for doctoral degrees.
