Non-Degree Seeking

An applicant in Business can only be admitted as a non-degree student if he or she has already earned a graduate Business degree.

 

Transient Students

A student who has been admitted to a master's degree program at another institution (whether matriculated or not) and who wishes to take courses for transfer to that institution may be admitted as a transient student upon receipt of an application for admission, application fee, and an official letter from that institution verifying that the student is enrolled in a graduate degree program and is in good academic standing.

The transient classification is valid for one semester only. Enrollment as a transient student in any subsequent semester requires reapplication (no additional application fee required) and an official letter from the applicant's degree-granting institution affirming that the student is enrolled in a graduate degree program and remains in good standing. A maximum of 12 UT Martin graduate semester hours may be accumulated while enrolled as a transient student.

 

Seniors Taking Graduate Course Work

A senior at the University of Tennessee at Martin who needs less than 30 semester hours to complete the requirements for a bachelor's degree and has at least a B (3.00) cumulative average, may take sufficient work for graduate credit to make a combined total of undergraduate and graduate credit hours of not more than 15 per semester, subject to the approval of the Dean of Graduate Studies. Business courses may only be taken if a student meets all undergraduate prerequisite course requirements and a minimum score of 500 on the GMAT.
