Non-Degree Students

Students wishing to enroll at the university without pursuing a degree should indicate this on the application form. Applicants may be asked to submit additional academic information, such as transcripts and test scores (ACT or SAT). Credit earned as a non-degree student may count toward a degree only after students reapply and are accepted for admission under regular student status. The reapplication process will include all relevant transcripts and applicable test scores.

Transferring Credit

We understand that transferring credits can seem overwhelming. Our admissions staff can give you a free unofficial transcript review to help you determine how your credits will transfer and a plan for finishing your degree.
