Non-degree program (Just Take a Class)
The non-degree program allows you to take one or more courses from our SEIS Course Catalog without committing to a graduate certificate or master's degree.
[Maximum of four courses on either a credit or audit basis.]
You may register and attend SEIS courses even if you do not intend to earn a graduate certificate or a master’s degree. Non-degree students must apply and be admitted before registering for classes.
If you have a bachelor’s degree*, the course credits you earned in your non-degree program may be used as a base toward completion of a GPS graduate certificate or master's degree program.
Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree will not be allowed to continue in a graduate certificate or master’s degree program.
Non-degree students may not take the following SEIS courses:
SEIS 776, SEIS 777, SEIS 779, SEIS 790, SEIS 795
Students taking courses on a credit basis must maintain a grade point average of 2.7 or better. Audited courses must be completed with a grade of “satisfactory.” Audited courses cannot be applied toward a certificate or master’s degree unless they are retaken for graduate credit. Non-degree students may take a maximum of four courses on either a credit or audit basis.
- *A bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally-accredited institution in the U.S. (or international equivalent) OR proof of enrollment in a GPS international exchange program OR proof of a minimum of three years of approved industry experience.
- An overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.7 meets minimum requirements, but applicants with lower GPAs will be considered based on their professional experience.
