Extension students (also called "non-degree" or "non-matriculating") are those who are not enrolled in a degree-earning program. These students register for courses on a space available basis.

If space is available, undergraduate students may register for a maximum of 18 credits and graduate students may register for a maximum of three graduate courses, excluding doctoral courses, without applying for degree status in an eligible program. Non-degree students attempting to satisfy prerequisite/certification requirements may be permitted to register additional credits/courses. Undergraduate students not meeting prerequisite requirements for a course should contact their assigned academic advisor to discuss waiving the prerequisite. Graduate students must obtain permission from the dean to enroll in a course that requires a prerequisite that the student has not completed. 

Extension students are not eligible to receive federal, state or institutional financial aid and are subject to the Tuition and Fees policy. Students taking an undergraduate-level course will be charged the same rate as an undergraduate online course in the College of Professional Studies. Graduate-level courses will be charged graduate rates.

Students subsequently wishing to enroll in a degree program must apply through  Admissions and will be subject to the university’s current admissions requirements. If accepted into a degree program, the student will follow the curriculum specified in the catalog at the time they are accepted and are responsible for all courses prescribed in that program, regardless of previously waived prerequisites.
