Determine if You Are a Non-Degree-Seeking Student

Individuals who wish to enroll in UNLV courses but may not seek to obtain a degree or certificate may attend as non-degree seeking students.

This category specifically applies to:

  • Current high school students who wish to participate in the Early Studies program and take classes while still in high school.
  • Students who do not meet the university admission requirements
  • Students who missed the application deadline but still wish to enroll for classes
  • Person wishing to enroll in a course for personal or professional fulfillment
  • Visiting students who want to enroll in UNLV courses and then transfer credits to their home institution.
  • Students who desire to take English language classes
  • Students who have earned a bachelors degree and seek to take additional undergraduate coursework. (Students who have earned a bachelors degree and seek to take graduate level courses should apply as graduate non-degree seeking students)

Important Note: As a non-degree seeking student, you are not eligible for federal financial aid or state aid. A maximum of 24 undergraduate credits and 15 graduate credits earned as a non-degree seeking student can be considered for transfer credit and count toward a degree as an admitted student. Remedial-level courses will not be considered as a transferable course in the UNLV admission process. Students who have previously attended UNLV in any capacity must be in good academic standing with UNLV in order to attend a non-degree seeking student.
