Postbaccalaureate Studies students, with appropriate preparation and with the permission of the assistant dean for registration at SIPA, may enroll in open international affairs courses. Well in advance of registration, and before seeking approval for course registration, Postbaccalaureate Studies students should consult the department's Web site for instructions, course application requirements, etc. For permission to register for SIPA courses, students must come in person to the SIPA office during the first and second week of classes. Language courses in Uzbek do not require special permission.

Courses taken through the School of Professional Studies may become the basis for advanced standing toward a graduate degree, but this is a matter to be resolved by the graduate school to which the student seeks admission.

The University reserves the right to withdraw or modify the courses of instruction or to change the instructors as may become necessary.
