Enrollment is on a space-available basis with the consent of the instructor and the academic department. Up to 36 credits earned through Open University may be applied to a bachelor's degree and up to 13 credits toward a master's degree and/or credential program with department pre-approval. Students may take up to 18 credits per quarter, but they may not enroll in directed or independent study, research, thesis, field work, cooperative education courses, or courses with the suffix R. Students planning to enroll in graduate courses (500-level) must obtain a memo from the appropriate department chair authorizing the enrollment and submit it to the Enrollment Services Center for the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE), University - Student Union, Room 105.
Matriculated students (students who have been formally admitted to the university) must be on inactive status for at least two quarters before they may attend Open University. This requirement applies to disqualified, out-of-state, international, and resident students.
Finally, Open University students must comply with university and department regulations regarding prerequisites, withdrawals, grading, and student conduct.
