You have the option to improve specific career skills by enrolling in online courses as a non-degree seeking student. Non-degree seeking students take the same courses as our graduate certificate students, minus the need to commit to a graduate program. This is an excellent way to experience our course offerings while weighing your options.
As a non-degree seeking student, you’ll have the opportunity to enroll in up to 3 credit hours of graduate-level courses. You’ll then be able to transfer up to 3 credits to the graduate certificate, so long as you are admitted and earn a “B” or higher. If a particular course interests you, enroll in non-degree status now and join our program as a graduate certificate student when it’s convenient for you.
