Non-degree Status

Non-degree status enables individuals to take college courses for credit without working toward a degree. Students may enroll in up to 11 credit hours of coursework each semester on a space-available basis. Credits earned may be applicable to a degree at the college if the student applies and is accepted as a formally matriculated student. The only entrance requirement is a high school diploma or its equivalent. Students who have been academically dismissed from any institution must wait one full year from the time of dismissal before enrolling under non-degree status. You may apply online or download and complete a one-page non degree application to be submitted to the Admissions Office. Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid.

Adult learners without college experience who do not qualify for matriculated study may also enroll as part-time, non-degree students. After completing 15 credit hours of college-level coursework with a minimum GPA of 2.0, they are eligible for degree study pending a completed application. The credit hours that they have earned will be applicable to their degree.

Students are responsible for completing the degree requirements in effect at the time they reach matriculated status.
