If you’re looking to grow personally and professionally, we have options for you.
You’re taking classes without officially declaring a major and you aren’t working towards graduating with a degree. Non-degree seeking students are often fulfilling prerequisites, growing their expertise in a certain field, or just interested in learning something new.
A non-degree seeking status means you will not qualify for on-campus housing (with the exception of National Student Exchange Students and sponsored students), financial aid, or upper division courses without consent of the department. If you would like to make sure that this option is right for you, get in touch with us.
It’s comprehensive, convenient, and fully online.* Completing your application will take around 30 minutes. Need to take a break and finish later? You can save your progress and pick up where you left off any time.
