Non-Degree Seeking Student

Some students take classes because they want to enhance their professional skills or complete credits in preparation for applying to a graduate program. These students are considered “non-degree seeking” because they aren’t in a formal degree program.

What courses can I take?

Courses are offered as space is available. Non-degree seeking students typically select courses numbered 100 (courses/catalog). You may be able to take upper level courses with permission from course instructors. Students wondering about availability of specific courses should contact Sarah Hines(see below).

What does it cost?

The cost per course depends on the type of coursework (ex. traditional undergraduate) and the number of credits. For a full listing of current tuition and fees or audit fees, please visit the Business Office page and select the appropriate tuition and fee schedule. Typical charges include tuition, student activity fees, technology fees, and books. Specialized courses may have an additional course fee and are listed on the tuition and fee schedule.

Example: for the 2022-23 academic year, traditional undergraduate non-degree seeking students taking 11 or less credits would pay $895 per credit for tuition, $20 per credit for student activity fees (up to a maximum student activity fee of $60 per semester), $25 per credit for technology fees (up to a maximum technology fee of $150 per semester), plus any specific course expenses for books or course fees.
