*It is very important that you select the correct “Application Type”. The application type selected drives what you will see as available programs. Most applicants will select “Graduate Degree-Distance Learning”, unless you are applying as a non-degree seeking student or to a certificate program.
Applicants wishing to enroll in courses, but not earn a degree may apply as a non-degree seeking student. Students may take up to 12 semester hours under non-degree status. Non-degree applications must be approved by the academic unit. Taking non-degree coursework will not make you admissible if you do not meet the minimum admission requirements. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for federal financial aid.
Non-degree applicants should follow steps 1-6 above. For application type, select “Non-Degree Seeking”.
Distance applicants must meet general admission requirements as outlined below. Some programs may have higher admission requirements. Please consult with an Enrollment Counselor before submitting an application.
