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.
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 program for more details.
Apply for Admission - Nondegree Undergraduate
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.)
