Non-Degree Seeking Students

The College offers single-course registration to applicants who are not interested in enrolling in and completing a specific program of study. The same policies and procedures governing regular admission to the College apply to non-degree seeking students. The College furnishes grades and transcripts for courses taken.

Graduate studies courses may be audited with the approval of the Director of Graduate Studies and subject to available space. Applicants who wish to audit a course for personal enrichment must complete a Graduate Application Form, pay the $50 application fee, submit official transcripts from each college or university attended, and pay the auditing fee. A student may not change to audit status after the end of the drop/add period.
