Non-Degree Students

Admission of Non-Degree Graduate Students

Students who wish to undertake graduate study, but who do not intend to become candidates for a degree are classified as non-degree students. This classification includes those who wish to take selected courses to earn credit for personal or professional benefit and those who enroll as summer visitors. To gain admission as a non-degree student during the academic year, such students must file a Non-Degree Student Application form or submit an online Non-Degree Application.

Non-degree students are permitted to enroll in only those courses that have been specifically designated by departments as being available to such students. Individual exceptions require special permission by the coordinator of the program in which the student wishes to enroll and/or by the appropriate dean.

Non-degree students are limited to a maximum of 12 credits in courses regularly applicable to a graduate degree. Waiver of this limitation requires the appropriate dean’s approval.
