Things To Know

Auditing Courses

As a non-degree student, you have the option to earn college credit for the course or audit the course. Auditing the course means you are only taking the course to gain knowledge and experience, not to receive a grade or credit.

If you decide to audit a course, you will not be able to go back and receive credit for the course.

The cost per credit hour for non-degree and auditing students is available from the Admissions Office. You are also required to pay a $25 technology fee per semester.

Meet Your Counselor

Our admissions counselors are here for degree-seeking as well as non-degree-seeking students. They will help you explore course options and tailor the best plan for you to acquire the skills you’re looking for.
