A non-degree/non-certificate seeking student is also known as a Continuing Graduate Status (CGS) student that: 

  • Can enroll in graduate-level course(s) without pursuing a graduate degree or certificate program.
  • Can apply up to 12 credit hours towards a graduate degree program. 
  • Will not be able to enroll in certain courses if the department or program has limited enrollment since degree-seeking students have first priority. Contact the graduate department about enrollment restrictions.

Admission Requirements

  • Submit an online application and pay a non-refundable $20 application fee. Students who have not previously applied for admission to a degree program can apply for admission if they meet the Graduate School and graduate department's requirement for admission. Students who have been denied regular or conditional admission to a degree program can apply for CGS and enroll in courses in that department with the department's permission. Courses taken as a CGS student after having been denied admission as a degree-seeking student cannot be applied to a future degree program.
Baccalaureate or Professional Degree
  • Applicants must have earned at least a US equivalent Baccalaureate degree.
