Classes as a Non-Degree Student
Students with bachelor's degrees from accredited institutions may be eligible to enroll as non degree students for a total of 12 credits prior to matriculating into formal graduate degree programs. Generally, students must formally apply to graduate certificate programs before enrolling in graduate courses intended for specific certificate programs.
Note: In some cases, a student may take only six credits prior to matriculating into a formal graduate degree program. Check program descriptions or contact your graduate coordinators for more information.
