Degree-Seeking Student

Degree-Seeking Student

A student who has been admitted as a freshman or transfer into a regular degree program in an academic unit is called a degree-seeking student. After enrolling, a student may change from one degree program to another by following established procedures, as long as he/she is accepted by the new unit.

Non-Degree Student

Non-degree status offers the opportunity to elect courses to meet personal objectives without enrollment in a degree program. Consideration for admission as a non-degree student is determined by (1) certified good academic standing at another college or university and eligibility to return or (2) successful completion of a college degree.
