Nondegree Coursework

Interested in taking a course before applying to a program?

Admission for nondegree students is rolling. We do encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible prior to the first day of the semester. As a nondegree applicant you are not required to pay the $75 application fee. However, applicants will need to submit an official, sealed transcript from their undergraduate institution.
