Off-Campus Undergraduate Course Approval

Permission to take a course off-campus undergraduate course procedures


A currently enrolled undergraduate student who wishes to complete a course off-campus must obtain written permission in advance of registering for the course from the student's School/College of Major. The form will be discussed and will require approval from the department advisor, Chairpersons of major and transfer course content, and Dean to ensure the off-campus student course meets written academic policy and to identify exactly how the course will transfer back to Morgan State University.


All students must consider some the following before seeking permission to take a course off-campus:
☐ Be a regular student seeking an undergraduate degree.
☐ Have a minimum cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.
☐ Have a completed official degree works evaluation with a declared major.
☐ Coursework by permission at another institution does not satisfy the residency at MSU and does not affect MSU GPA.
☐ MSU reserves the right to deny transfer credit that has not been pre-approved.

Students with approved permission to take a course off-campus forms must have ALL final official transcripts sent to the Office of the Registrar by email to records@morgan.edu or by U.S. Mail to:

Office of the Registrar
Morgan State University
1700 East Cold Spring Lane
Baltimore, Maryland 21251

Official transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution's records office either by mail or electronically through a secured transcript service approved by Morgan State University. Please note that official transcripts sent by students from their official MSU email account as attachments will not be accepted as official.

All students must review and have with them when meeting with their department advisor:
Permission to take a course(s) off-campus student checklist. This checklist contains important information to assist you in completing the form correctly such as department Chairpersons, Advisors, and course equivalencies.
