Enrollment Steps for a Non-degree Student

Welcome!

As a non-degree student you:

  • may take up to 11 credits per semester
  • are not eligible to apply for financial aid

Please note, students are only eligible to apply for Federal Financial Aid if they are registered in a degree/certificate program. Non-degree students are not eligible. If you are interested in financial aid, a part-time degree/certificate program may work better for you. Speak to our admissions counselors for assistance.
