Students must have their programs of study approved by the MLS program director. Courses at the 300 or 400 level that are available to be taken for graduate credit as a D500 level seminar will include additional assignments beyond those required for undergraduate credit. Enrollment in such courses requires the approval of the instructor and of the MLS program director. It is sometimes possible for a student to take a graduate level course at IU Northwest or elsewhere that can count as an elective in the MLS program. Permission for this must be given by the program director before the student registers. Students who have graduate course credits before they enroll in the MLS program may have some credits transferred into the program, but such transfers of credits will not be considered until the student has demonstrated satisfactory progress in the MLS program. Courses used for another degree or certificate cannot also be used for MLS credits.
