Graduate Non-Degree (GND) Program
The Graduate Non-Degree (GND) Program is for students who already have a bachelor's degree, or higher degree, who wish to enroll in graduate courses but not seek a graduate degree. GND students may enroll in graduate courses only, or enroll in a combination of graduate and undergraduate courses in the same semester. Graduate Non-Degree students pay graduate tuition rates.
Graduate coursework in Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Business, Adult Education, Education, Library and Information Science, Nursing and Social Work is typically not available to GND students. Since GND students are not eligible to take graduate courses in several graduate programs, consider carefully whether GND is right for you before you enter the program.
Before you apply, please contact the graduate department in which your interest lies to determine your best admission and course options. If the GND Program is your best option, please review the Graduate Non-Degree Policies for more specific information, and then continue with the Graduate Non-Degree Application Process. Any GND student previously admitted on or after January 1, 1993, who stopped out for one semester or longer and wishes to enroll in graduate courses only or combination of graduate and undergraduate courses, please complete the Graduate Non-Degree Update Form (PDF)
Are you planning to enroll in only undergraduate courses?
Applicants with a bachelorís degree or higher degree, who wish to enroll in only undergraduate courses will now be admitted through Undergraduate Admissions and should complete the Undergraduate Admissions - Visiting Student Application.
