Acceptance into one of the undergraduate programs of study at Franklin University does not ensure or guarantee acceptance into a Franklin University graduate program. Students must meet the admission requirements of the graduate program and be admitted into a graduate program of study in order to pursue the Joint Programs of Study option.

Each program of study in the graduate program is governed by its respective program criteria and academic standards set forth in the Academic Bulletin. Application for enrollment into a graduate program must be submitted two terms prior to commencing graduate level coursework.

Undergraduate students who are accepted into one of the graduate programs will be concurrently enrolled in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Any graduate course used in the undergraduate area may not be counted if a grade of "C" or less is earned.
