TITLE: Non-Degree Seeking Student

PURPOSE: To establish policy for non-degree seeking students in the John D. Bower School of Population Health.

POLICY: An individual who wishes to take graduate coursework but is not a student in a Bower School of Population Health academic degree program may apply as a Bower School of Population Health non-degree seeking student (NDSS). The individual must complete the Non-Degree Seeking Enrollment Request Form and receive approval from the course director(s) and Bower School of Population Health Dean or designee to enroll.

Successful completion of courses taken does not in itself qualify the individual for subsequent admission to a Bower School of Population Health graduate program.

The Bower School of Population Health limits the number of credit hours that may be accepted toward Bower School of Population Health degree requirements.

SCOPE: All SOPH students
