Learn What's New in Education

Individuals with Bachelor’s degrees are welcome to take individual graduate courses in the College of Education, provided the course prerequisites are met. To enroll in courses, an application for Admission to Graduate School as a non-degree student in the College of Education should be completed online by the deadline date. Non-degree coursework does not accumulate toward a graduate degree, but a maximum of 9 credits of non-degree coursework might later be transferred into a degree program. Courses would have to meet the time limit requirement of the Graduate School.

Non-degree students who need student financial aid should check with the Office of Student Financial Aid as soon as possible to determine whether or not such aid is available for a non-degree course of study.

Those who miss the deadline date for application or who want to take just one semester of non-degree coursework can enter “life long learner” in the comment box on the graduate application to facilitate a faster admission to the Graduate School.
