Are you a newly-graduated student needing to finish up some prerequisites before applying for a degree program? Are you a professional thinking about switching fields? Do you just want to enroll in a few courses to learn a new skill? Non-degree study may be right for you.

If you are a student or a prospective transfer student who is not currently admitted into a degree program on the Urbana-Champaign campus, you are considered a non-degree student and may register in off-campus, site-based and/or online course sections as a non-degree student.

Non-degree students include: 

  • High school students interested in pursuing NetMath (online math) programs
  • High school math teachers wanting to keep current on math skills
  • Undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled at another university who want to take an online course
  • Prospective transfer students not yet admitted into a degree program
  • Working professionals who want or need professional development or certification
  • Anyone interested in earning an undergraduate or graduate certificate
  • Anyone interested in taking a class for fun
  • Corporations, school districts or agencies interested in a custom cohort program for online or off-site courses or degree programs
