Non-Degree Seeking


Application fee: $30

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.

Non-degree admission forms can be found in Apply & Track Status.

Non-degree-seeking applications are separate from certificate-seeking programs. Information on certificate programs is available here
