TITLE: Non-Degree Seeking Student

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

POLICY: Individuals who wish to take graduate course work but are not students in a UMMC academic degree program may apply as non-degree seeking students (NDSS). Applicants must first complete a Non-Degree Seeking Enrollment Request Form, which is available on the Bower School of Population Health website. Non-degree seeking students may not earn more than 9 semester hours. Successful completion of courses taken does not in itself qualify the individual for subsequent admission to a graduate program.

SCOPE: All SOPH students
