Students may enroll in graduate courses if they hold one of the following statuses:
Degree graduate students
These students are fully enrolled in a graduate program, having been admitted after following the admissions procedures detailed below.
These students are taking a course for transfer to another institution. They must provide written permission from the home university and must complete required forms at the Registrar’s Office.
Non-degree students may register in graduate courses if they gain entry to the University by completing the required forms from the Registrar’s Office and obtaining the permission of the instructor(s). Non-degree students must apply to and be accepted by a graduate program in order to receive its credential. Non-degree student status does not guarantee admission to a graduate credential program. A maximum of 2.0 units taken as a non-degree student may be credited toward a graduate credential. Upon acceptance to a graduate credential program, courses completed as a non-degree student will be evaluated to determine if they can be applied to the credential.
