Non-Degree Students

Non-degree enrollment status is designed for students who wish to take courses but do not plan to pursue a degree. Non-degree students do not qualify for financial aid. Please complete the short-form application below and an enrollment advisor will assist you with your next steps.

Application Process

Non-Degree enrollment status does not require formal admission to the university. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not guarantee regular admission to the University.

Before applying as a non-degree student, please know what course(s) you want to take and when they are offered.
