Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students in this classification usually take one or more courses for professional growth or personal enrichment and are not seeking college credit.

Typically, non-degree seekers are not required to complete general college placement assessments. However, transcripts of previous work may be needed to determine if prerequisites have been met for specific courses.

Types of non-degree seeking students may include the following:

  • Adult Special Students (usually 21 years of age or older)
  • Audit Students
  • Certificate Seekers
  • Transient Students
  • Early Admission High School Students
  • Academically Talented/Gifted High School Students
  • Licensed Teachers seeking an Additional Teaching Endorsement

New applicants must submit an admissions application to the university or college and pay the non-refundable application fee. If you have previously paid an application fee to the institution, you do not need to do so again.

Non-degree students are not eligible for Financial Aid programs.
