The non-degree program is perfect for students who wish to take a single course or for students who plan on applying to a matriculated program via CVN.

Students can take up to six credits or 2 classes as a non-degree student and apply those towards the coursework of the certification, MS, or DES program. Though non-degree grades are considered with the MS or DES applications, doing well as a non-degree student does not guarantee admission to a matriculated program.

To apply for non-degree status, complete the non-degree application. Applicants must submit their resume, personal-professional statement, and transcripts. The GRE is not required. Non-degree applications will be processed within 1-5 business days.
