Individual programs can be arranged in non-degree study for students who have special study needs or indefinite educational goals. Non-degree study may be appropriate for transient students; university graduates desiring additional study beyond the associate or bachelor's degrees; university graduates seeking initial or additional certification in business education, English, or communications; or persons wishing to take a limited number of courses for credit or audit.
Students pursuing non-degree study may register for a maximum of nine credits of study during a semester. Permission to exceed nine credits must be obtained from the Student Support Center. Students with non-degree admission status do not qualify for financial aid.
Students admitted for non-degree study may, if they wish, make formal application for degree status through the Student Support Center. Students seeking degree status are encouraged to apply for admission when they have earned 12 to 15 credits in non-degree studies, provided they have a cumulative quality-point average of at least 2.00. Personnel in the Office of Enrollment Management should be consulted for advice on matters relating to degree requirements.
