Graduate Course Proposals

This guidance describes the steps required to launch an Graduate Course proposal originating from Purdue West Lafayette for University approvals. Please see Purdue Fort Wayne or Purdue Northwest guidance for proposals originating from these campuses, or reach out to campus contacts.

A Graduate Course proposal may be used for 50000- or 60000-level courses. A 50000-level course is a graduate course for which undergraduate students (juniors and seniors only) may be eligible to register. Undergraduate students are not permitted to take 60000-level courses. Professional courses (80000-level) should also use the Graduate Course proposal.

Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis once they enter the workflow. Time to complete indicates the typical completion timeframe from proposal launch to completion in workflow. Some proposals may complete faster, while others may need more time based on when they are launched. Please see Key Planning Considerations below.
