submission to the SFA office provided they are properly completed and docu- mented.
The hours attempted and GPA as reported in the DSU computer database will be the only official record accepted for all satisfactory academic progress determina- tions. If there is an error discovered, the student should contact the Registrar’s office before notifying the Student Financial Assistance Office.
This policy is effective beginning January 1997. All students receiving financial aid at Delta State University beginning January 1, 1997 are subject to these guidelines.
There are two levels of admission to graduate study: admission to the University and admission to the degree program.
Admission to the University is a prerequisite for admission to a degree program. It is also used by applicants who wish only to enroll as non-degree students in selected graduate level courses for personal or professional development.
To enroll in coursework, non-degree students must have permission from the department in which the courses are offered. There is no obligation on the part of the department offering the degree program to accept coursework taken by stu- dents in non-degree status. Students enrolled as non-degree who decide to pur- sue a degree must make application in the Admissions Office as a degree-seeking student.
To be eligible for admission to the University the following requirements must be met:
An applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution.
An applicant must have an undergraduate background appropriate for the graduate study proposed.
An applicant must be eligible to reenter in good standing the last college or university attended.
An applicant born after January 1, 1957 must present proof of immunization for measles and rubella. Medical exceptions to this policy are described in the General Catalog, a copy of which is available upon request.
TO BE ADMITTED TO A DEGREE PROGRAM AT THE MASTERS OR EDUCA- TIONAL SPECIALIST LEVELS, applicants must (a) meet the requirements for admission to the University, as stated above, and (b) meet the admission require- ments for the specific degree being sought (see Admission Requirements under each degree program--requirements for admission to the doctoral program are separate).
It should be understood that admission to the University does not imply admis- sion to a degree program. A student may be required to take additional course work to meet the prerequisites of the particular degree program. A student with deficiencies in the major field or in written English may be required to take suffi- cient undergraduate coursework to correct these deficiencies.
