Non-Admitted Students

What’s a non-admitted student?

“Non-admitted student” is used to describe a student who is taking courses but is not working to achieve a degree. These students may be taking classes for professional enrichment or for personal development. Non-admitted students are required to follow all the same rules of the university as degree-seeking students.
