The Non-Degree Study option is ideal for individuals who are interested in pursuing graduate coursework for their own personal or academic development as well as those who wish to experience graduate classes before committing to an advanced certificate or degree program. There is no limit to the number of credit hours a student may take while pursuing Non-Degree Study.
If a Non-Degree student wishes to matriculate into a degree program, he must do so prior to completion of 12 credits. He must also make an appointment with an advisor and submit any additional application materials as outlined on page 39 of the Bulletin to be considered for acceptance. All credits earned prior to matriculation may apply to a degree program in accordance to the seven-year rule provided the course(s) taken fulfill program requirements.
