    I am graduating in May and wondering if you can still take undergraduate courses at your University even after you've graduated. I wouldn't mind getting a second degree, but don't know if you can still take courses after graduating. My school doesn't have a Post-Bacc, so I'm wondering if this is an option? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I know it's probably a stupid question.

    It would completely depend on your school's policy. So you should ask them.

    My school has four options post-bacc:

    1) Second undergrad degree
    2) Graduate degree
    3) "a la carte" student -- limited to 6 hours/semester
    4) Non-degree post-bacc student -- no limit on hours, but pay graduate rate

    I'm sure you're school has something similar. Check with the admissions/registrar's office.

    It depends on the school. I've done my post-bacc work at a university where I enroll as a "graduate special" student. I'm a grad student because I have a BA, but I'm not enrolled in a graduate program. I'm limited to 6 credits per semester and don't qualify for financial aid.
