Graduate Non-degree Status (students not working toward a degree)

Enrollment in graduate-level Haile/US Bank College of Business courses is normally restricted to students admitted to graduate business degree programs. However, students in graduate non-degree status may enroll in MAcc or MBA courses providing 1) the Office of Graduate Education has on file official copies of all their undergraduate and graduate transcripts; 2) they meet all stated prerequisites for the course(s) for which they wish to enroll; and 3) they have received written permission from the appropriate graduate program director (MAcc or MBA). Students in graduate non-degree status may take no more than nine hours of graduate business courses, unless an exception is approved by the graduate program director. Graduate non-degree status is not available for the ELOC program.

Visiting Students

Students who would like to take a course from the Haile/US Bank College of Business for transfer to another university, must submit a transcript from his/her home institution in addition to the other university requirements. Permission to enroll must be approved by the graduate program director. All prerequisites must be met and an undergraduate transcript may be required. Visiting student status is not available for the ELOC program.

Academic Requirements

Transfer Credit

Transfer credit may be granted for up to nine semester hours. The credit must have been earned at an AACSB accredited institution within the last five years with a grade of at least a B. The courses may be no older than six years at the time of graduation. The director of graduate programs in the Haile/US Bank College of Business must evaluate the courses as equivalent to NKU courses. Courses rejected by the director of graduate programs in the Haile/US Bank College of Business will not be transferred into the program. Credit earned by correspondence will not apply toward 600-level requirements in the program. No credit can be earned through work experience. Applications for transfer must be submitted to the director of graduate programs in the Haile/US Bank College of Business and must include title and edition of the texts used and detailed course descriptions or course syllabi.

Students or graduates wishing to transfer coursework to the Master of Accountancy degree program at NKU may be granted credit for up to 9 semester hours at the discretion of the MAcc graduate program director.

Students or graduates wishing to transfer coursework to the Master of Business Administration degree program at NKU may be granted credit for up to 12 semester hours at the discretion of the MBA graduate program director.

A student who wishes to take graduate courses elsewhere after being admitted to the MAcc or MBA program must receive written approval from the graduate program director before registering for the courses.

Refer to academic requirements in the graduate studies section of this catalog for NKU transfer policies.

Academic Standing

A GPA of at least 3.0 must be maintained for all graduate level coursework. A student with a GPA below 3.0 will not be permitted to advance beyond 18 semester hours in the program until the GPA is raised to 3.0 by repeating courses. A course may be repeated only once, and only two courses may be repeated. Only courses in which a less-than-satisfactory grade was earned (i.e., C or F) may be repeated; the repeat grade will be used to compute the GPA. Students must file an Option to Repeat form in the Office of the University Registrar for any repeated courses. If a student’s graduate GPA falls below 3.0, he/she will be placed on academic probation. Any student whose graduate GPA has remained below 3.0 for nine credit hours will be dismissed from the program.
