Non-degree Seeking Graduate Students

You must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in order to attend as a graduate non-degree seeking. You do not need to complete a formal application process. You will be granted graduate non-degree seeking status when you register for classes.

As a graduate non-degree seeking student you may enroll in graduate-level courses and receive graduate credit for teacher certification requirements or for personal enrichment. A maximum of 9 credits can apply toward a master’s degree provided they are approved by your advisor and fit within the seven-year time period required for completion of the degree. If you decide to pursue a master’s degree, it is in your best interest to change your status to graduate regular as soon as possible.
