Admission Information for Nondegree and Graduate Special Students


Nondegree: An individual who is not admitted to a degree program is defined as a nondegree student. Individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree are not eligible for nondegree status. A nondegree student may register for a maximum of 8 undergraduate semester credits per semester. Although there is no limit to the number of credits that may be earned as a nondegree student, a maximum of 30 semester credits is acceptable toward a baccalaureate degree. Nondegree students are not eligible for financial aid, including student loans. All nondegree students are governed by university regulations, including academic probation and dismissal, and are encouraged to seek official admission at the earliest possible date.

Graduate Special: The graduate special classification is for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree who wish to take graduate courses but do not plan to pursue a program leading to an advanced degree, or for applicants who do not meet the requirements for admission to regular graduate standing. Admission to graduate special status does not constitute admission to graduate standing in the graduate school. With graduate special classification, a student may enroll for undergraduate or graduate credit and may satisfy the teacher certificate requirements. Although there is no limit to the number of credits that may be earned as a graduate special student, a maximum of 9 semester credits may be applied toward a program of study. Graduate Special students are not eligible for financial aid, including student loans. All graduate special students are governed by university regulations, including academic warning and probation, and are encouraged to seek official admission at the earliest possible date.
