Non-Degree Seeking Students

The University of Scranton recognizes that, from time to time, there are people who wish to take graduate level courses without necessarily pursuing graduate degrees or certification programs. Typically, they seek such a route in order to contribute to their personal growth and/or professional development. Those students can request a non-degree admission.

To be considered for Non-Degree Status at The University of Scranton you must:

  • Possess a bachelor’s degree with an overall grade point average of 2.75 earned at an accredited U.S. institution (or have an equivalent degree from another country).
  • Possess an overall 3.0 GPA in any graduate work undertaken prior to filing the application are required.
  • Submit an official copy of your final bachelor’s degree transcript along with an official copy of any other transcripts showing post-baccalaureate work undertaken.
  • Complete a Non-Degree application form.
  • Indicate your reason(s) for seeking admission as a Non-Degree Graduate Student. Please note that you may be asked to provide additional information if the reviewing department would like to know more about you.

Admission to Non-Degree status should in no way be construed as a guarantee of subsequent admission to a degree program. Non-Degree Graduate Students are not eligible for graduate assistantships or financial assistance. For complete Non-Degree Admissions policies, click here.
