Non-degree-seeking applicants must confirm that they have completed an undergraduate degree; and, if applicable, meet English proficiency requirements for Provisional admission. They are not required to meet the other standards of Regular admission. 

Non-degree-seeking applicants do not intend to work for an advanced degree. If a non-degree-seeking student later applies for admission as a regular degree-seeking student, and is accepted by a department, the total of transfer credit may not exceed 9 hours.
