Courses taken under the graduate level designation remain at the graduate level in course content but are designated on the transcript as fulfilling the undergraduate requirements for a minor. If applied toward a minor and/or toward the required hours for graduation with the BA, the course(s) may not subsequently be applied toward a graduate degree.
