Undergraduate Non-Degree Students

Undergraduate Non-degree candidates are not required to submit any transcripts for admission purposes. Although, many academic departments may need a student's unofficial transcript to show that a course pre-requisite has been satisfied.

Non-Degree Application

Please be aware:

  • Non-degree students are not eligible to receive financial aid benefits.
  • Current and continuing degree seeking students have course registration priority. Non-degree student registration opens after the open registration period has ended for degree seeking students. Learn more about academic dates & deadline periods

Oftenly overlooked is the section on the application regarding Residency for Tuition Purposes.
