Nondegree 

Apply as a nondegree-seeking student if:

  • You are taking a class for personal or professional enrichment, not to obtain a degree
  • You are a student visiting from another college or university and want to transfer a KU course to your home institution
  • You are a high school student who plans to take a college-level course during high school

Financial aid is generally not available for nondegree-seeking students; however, KU does provide a variety of payment options.

 

Nondegree Undergraduate

Students are limited to six credit hours per semester. Courses taken as nondegree-seeking do not automatically apply toward a KU degree. Check with your chosen program for more details.

Apply for Admission - Nondegree Undergraduate

1. Start or continue your undergraduate application

The one-time $40 application fee must be paid by credit card or electronic check.

2. Check your undergraduate admission status

You can check application status online beginning 1-2 business days after submitting your application.

 

Nondegree Graduate

Nondegree-seeking graduate applicants must meet regular admission standards. If you later apply for admission as a degree-seeking student and are accepted, transfer credit may not exceed six hours, or eight hours if you hold a baccalaureate degree from KU. (This total includes credit from other accredited graduate schools, as well as nondegree credit earned at KU.)

Current KU Students

Adding online courses is an excellent way to make progress toward timely graduation, especially when on-campus sections fill or schedules become complicated. For current KU students, enrolling in online courses is simple:

  1. Search online courses (choose "Online Courses" from the Instruction Mode dropdown)
  2. Log into Enroll & Pay and proceed to the same enrollment page that you do for your other courses.
  3. Tuition and fees are assessed through Enroll & Pay, so charges will be included with the rest of your enrollment.
