Non-Degree Seeking Students

Thank you for your interest in non-degree graduate study at Florida Atlantic University. Non-degree courses can be taken for enrichment, certification, or to meet pre-acceptance requirements for entry into a graduate degree program. The Office of the Registrar processes all non-degree applications; please visit their website for additional information: http://www.fau.edu/registrar/registration/non-degree.php .

If you decide to pursue a graduate degree at FAU in the future, it is important to understand the university regulations about non-degree coursework. The following provides a brief description about non-degree graduate study at FAU; additional information can be found in the university's academic catalog: http://www.fau.edu/registrar/universitycatalog/welcome.php .

  • Certain courses may require permission from the instructor prior to registration. Registration for such courses must be done in person at the Registrar's Office.
  • Non-degree seeking students are not permitted to take certain graduate level courses.
  • Non-degree seeking students are not eligible to receive Financial Aid.
  • Graduate programs are under no obligation to accept non-degree coursework should a student decide to pursue a graduate degree at a later date.
  • While graduate programs may allow some non-degree courses to count toward a degree, no more than 1/3 of a graduate degree may be comprised of non-degree courses.
  • Degree-seeking students receive priority registration for courses. Non-degree students are only allowed to register just prior to the start of each term.
