Non-Degree Seeking Students

The minimum requirement for Non-Degree seeking graduate admission is the receipt of a U.S. Bachelors degree from a regionally accredited university/college or a final degree awarded from a comparable institute of higher education as evaluated by the University of Arizona Graduate College.  There is no GPA requirement for graduate Non-degree seeking students. 

Helpful Facts and Tips for prospective graduate Non-Degree seeking students:

  • Non-Degree students are eligible to enroll in graduate-level courses. It is advisable that you contact the department offering courses of interest to ensure that:
    • Their courses are available to Non-Degree students.
    • You apply to the correct campus on which those courses are offered. 
  • Up to 12 units of graduate credit earned in Non-Degree status and/or transferred from other institutions, may be applied toward a graduate degree once the student obtains admission to a degree program.
  • Applicants who have a low GPA on their undergraduate degree can complete 12 semester units of graded 500-level or higher coursework and obtain a minimum GPA of 3.00, which can be used by graduate admissions as the sole admit GPA to a graduate degree program.
  • Graduate Non-Degree applications should be submitted no later than one week before classes begin to avoid unexpected delays and late registration penalties assessed by the Bursar's Office.
  • If Non-Degree registration for a major semester is missed, then a new application and fee will be required.
