You can take certain graduate courses by enrolling in the Graduate School as a non-degree-seeking student. However, not all courses are open to nondegree students, and if you later decide to work toward a degree, at most 12 semester hours taken while you were in the nondegree category can be counted toward a degree.

Any international student wishing to apply as a non-degree student must do the following: 1) submit the non-degree seeking application online, and 2) submit evidence of the foreign bachelor's degree (i.e. the official degree statement and official transcript) to the Graduate School (LHL G03) for approval.

Financial aid is NOT available to students who are categorized as nondegree seeking students.

Please check the Graduate School website for non-degree deadline dates.

Apply Online as a Nondegree Graduate Student If the course(s) you want to take is available to nondegree students, you can create an account and fill out the non-degree-seeking application online.
