Non-Degree programs for Graduate Engineering and Graduate Software ("Just Take a Class")

The non-degree programs of Graduate Engineering or Graduate Software allow you to take one or more graduate-level courses from either the ETLS Course Catalog (Graduate Engineering courses) or SEIS Course Catalog (Graduate Software courses) without committing to a graduate certificate or master's degree.

[You may take a maximum of four graduate courses on either a credit or audit basis as a non-degree student.]


GRADUATE ENGINEERING NON-DEGREE PROGRAM

You may register and attend ETLS courses even if you do not intend to earn a graduate certificate or a master’s degree. Students must apply and gain admission to the Non-Degree Graduate Engineering program before registering for classes.

If you have a bachelor’s degree*, the course credits you earned in your non-degree program may be used as a base toward completion of a Graduate Engineering graduate certificate or master's degree program.

Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree will not be allowed to continue in a graduate certificate or master’s degree program.

Non-degree students may not take the following ETLS courses:
ETLS 858, ETLS 880 and ETLS 881

Program Requirements
Students taking graduate courses on a credit basis must maintain a grade point average of 2.7 or better. Audited courses must be completed with a grade of “satisfactory.” Audited courses cannot be applied toward a graduate certificate or master’s degree unless they are retaken for graduate credit. Non-degree students may take a maximum of four graduate courses on either a credit or audit basis.

Entrance Requirements

  1. *A bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally-accredited institution in the U.S. (or international equivalent) OR proof of enrollment in a Graduate Engineering international exchange program OR proof of a minimum of three years of approved industry experience.
  2. An overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.7 meets minimum requirements, but applicants with lower GPAs will be considered based on their professional experience.

GRADUATE SOFTWARE NON-DEGREE PROGRAM

You may register and attend SEIS courses even if you do not intend to earn a graduate certificate or a master’s degree. Students must apply and gain admission to the Non-Degree Graduate Software program before registering for classes.

If you have a bachelor’s degree*, the course credits you earned in your non-degree program may be used as a base toward completion of a Graduate Software graduate certificate or master's degree program.

Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree will not be allowed to continue in a graduate certificate or master’s degree program.

Non-degree students may not take the following SEIS courses:
SEIS 776, SEIS 777, SEIS 779, SEIS 790, SEIS 795
