Please note: Completing courses as a non-degree student offers no assurance that a student will be accepted into a graduate program at some future date. If accepted into a program at a future date no more than nine non-degree credits may be counted towards a degree or certificate program, and then, only by consent of the student's graduate advisory committee and department chair.
Students interested in taking a course as a non-degree student should contact the program or department that houses that course. Admission as a non-degree student does not guarantee enrollment. Not all programs allow non-degree students in their graduate courses - the College of Business and the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders are examples of programs with strict requirements for non-degree enrollment. The College of Nursing will not enroll non-degree students due to course demand by degree seeking students.
