Students who want to take graduate-level courses for professional development, permanent certification, or personal enrichment, may seek admission as non-degree students. Apply via the Graduate School Admissions Portal.

Note: A maximum of 15 credits as a non-degree student may be applied to a degree program, with departmental approval and if the credits were earned within five years preceding entry into the degree program.
