Post Baccalaureate Students

Apply to Take Courses as a Non-Degree Seeking Student

Please read through each application section to determine which forms to complete. Note that there is a separate process to apply to take undergraduate or graduate courses. Undergraduate and Graduate Arts & Sciences courses are processed through the University Registrar's Office, but students seeking to enroll in Graduate Arts & Sciences courses must complete additional forms. Courses in all other graduate schools are processed by that graduate school and non-degree seeking students must contact those schools directly. University policy prohibits the awarding of a second baccalaureate degree.
