Non-Degree Admission

For Non-Degree graduate admission, the application deadline is ten business days prior to the start of the term. Transcripts or proof of degree are not required at the time of application. However, Non-Degree applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of the deadline to avoid possible delays.

Follow these steps to apply for non-degree admission to the College of Graduate Studies:

Non-degree applicants do not pay the application fee

Registration for Non-Degree Students

Not all programs accept non-degree students in their courses, and some courses are open to non-degree students only with permission from the program that offers the course. See the list of restricted courses.

You may obtain a permission form and have it signed by the program. The form must be processed by Campus411 All-in-1. Students who prefer to register on-line can request electronic permission from the program. See the list of programs for contact information for each graduate program.

More information on registration and the use of CampusNet can be found on the Registrar's Office pages.
