KEEP LEARNING AT STATE

You crave the ongoing challenge of study and want to be a lifelong learner, but aren’t pursuing a degree at this time. We invite you to apply online and take up to 15 credits per semester enrolled as a non-degree student. This enrollment status is open to any adult, regardless of academic background. If you are a current high school student aged 16 or older, you are also eligible to apply and attend classes with parental consent.

With a non-degree student status, you won’t be eligible to receive financial aid, and no more than 32 credit hours earned can be transferred to a degree program in the future.
