Distance Education - G6 Definition and Regulations

Postbaccalaureate Non-degree (G6)

Application for postbaccalaureate non-degree classification requires a completed application form, a statement as to the applicant's need for the proposed course work at Texas A&M University and his or her ability to successfully complete that course work, the required application processing fee, and all complete, official transcript showing completion of a baccalaureate degree. Applicants for postbaccalaureate non-degree classification must indicate a department of affiliation when they apply. Admission to postbaccalaureate non-degree classification requires departmental approval along with approval of the Office of Admissions and Records.

Enrollment of postbaccalaureate non-degree students may be limited by college or departmental policies.

Postbaccalaureate non-degree classification is intended for students with a baccalaureate degree from an institution of higher education.

If at a later date, a postbaccalaureate non-degree student decides to pursue a graduate degree, the student must understand that limitations may be placed on course work taken while in G6 status. Specifically, the student must understand that a college or a department may decide whether or not to accept any G6 work toward the student's graduate degree; however, with the approval of the student's graduate advisory committee, the department head, the college dean and the Office of Graduate Studies, a maximum of 12 credit hours taken in postbaccalaureate non-degree status may be used on a student's degree plan. Admission to postbaccalaureate non-degree status does not establish eligibility for admission to degree-seeking status.

Postbaccalaureate non-degree classification applications are handled on a first come, first served basis. Applications submitted within one month of registration may not be processed in time to begin that semester or term.

Each postbaccalaureate non-degree student must be reviewed by his or her department of affiliation for continuation at the end of each semester.

A postbaccalaureate non-degree student must maintain a 3.0000 GPR on all course work attempted to remain eligible to register. University departments and colleges may have additional or higher requirements.

Postbaccalaureate non-degree status students are not eligible for financial aid, assistantships, fellowships, or scholarships funded by Texas A&M University.

Postbaccalaureate non-degree status normally is not available to international students. Please contact Monique Stewart (stewart@math.tamu.edu) for more information
