Graduate Studies - Doctoral, Master's, and Certificate Programs

Degree Seeking Students
Students interested in graduate study must submit an application for admission and provide all required documentation based on their intended program of study. In order to register for a course(s) as a degree-seeking student, you must be accepted to the University.  Applicants who provide the appropriate academic documentation can be considered for permission to register* for a course(s) while his/her application is pending. Upon receiving permission to register, you can take up to six credits under tentative status. You will be considered tentative status until your application is complete and an official admission decision is issued. Financial aid is not available to students classified as tentative status. If your application is completed, and you are officially accepted into your program, prior to the end of the term, you may be considered for federal and College financial aid at that time.

Non-Degree Study
Non-degree study allows students to explore course offerings and to acquire job-related knowledge without pursuing a degree. Students can enroll in any graduate course for which they have satisfied prerequisite requirements. Non-degree students will be required to submit a copy of  their transcript(s) as proof of appropriate preparation. The maximum number of credits that can be earned as a non-degree student is limited to 6 credits.   Continuing registration normally requires a cumulative grade point average of "B" (3.0) in courses taken at the University.
