14-00 Nondegree Student Classification and Course Enrollment


Revisions to Policy 14-00 were approved by the Senate on April 29, 2014. Implementation pending ACUE action. To view revisions, see the legislative report.

A nondegree student who has not been dropped from degree or provisional status by this University or any other college or university for unsatisfactory scholarship will be listed as a nondegree regular student and may enroll in any number of credits, not to exceed the typical credit load of a full-time student per semester if criteria 1, 2, and 3 are met. Nondegree regular students who change from degree candidates to nondegree regular or who intend to become degree candidates must also meet criterion 4.

A nondegree student who has been dropped from degree or provisional status by this University or any other college or university because of unsatisfactory scholarship will be listed as a nondegree conditional student and may enroll in a maximum of 12 credits per semester if criteria 1, 2, 3, and 4 are met.

  1. The student has completed the prerequisites for the courses to be scheduled or has obtained permission from the instructor to schedule the course.
  2. Space is available after degree candidates and provisional students have been accommodated.
  3. The student has not been dismissed or suspended for nonacademic reasons from any college or university. An applicant not in good standing at another accredited college or university for disciplinary reasons must consult with the director of the Office of Student Conduct for admissions clearance.
  4. The student has obtained academic advising/counseling from an adviser/counselor designated by the academic unit to which admission, or reinstatement and re-enrollment, is desired.

Note: A student must be admitted, or reinstated and re-enrolled, as a degree candidate to apply the credits earned as a nondegree student toward fulfilling the requirements for a degree. The dean of the college of enrollment shall decide which credits may be used to fulfill the degree requirements.
