Applicants who do not work toward a degree may be admitted as a non-degree student. Students in this category who wish to be reclassified to degree-seeking must submit appropriate transcripts and possibly undergo placement assessment. A change of status form must be completed. Forms are available in the Admissions and Records Office. Reclassification will not occur until all requirements of the new admissions category are met. Students may not change status during the first term of enrollment. These categories include: Technical Certificate, Transient, Audit, Personal/Professional Enrichment, Dual Studies (High School Students), and Academically Gifted (High School Students). To receive Financial Aid, students must be degree-seeking or seeking a certificate that has been approved for Financial Aid.
