Take a class as a non-degree student

The non-degree application requires candidates to provide contact and educational history. 

A transcript is required for admission as a non-degree student, as proof of completion of a bachelor's degree. Candidates can upload a copy of an unofficial transcript during the application process. Transcripts must include the name of the degree granting institution. If your name appears different on your transcript, please notify the Graduate Office.

Non-degree students may take up to 9 credits unless approved for professional development status. Certain courses are reserved for matriculated students and therefore not available to non-degree students.
