Non-Degree Seeking

Non-degree enrollment status is designed for students who wish to take courses but do not plan to pursue a degree. Non-degree students do not qualify for financial aid. Please complete the short-form application below and an Enrollment Advisor will assist you with your next steps.

Application Process

Non-Degree enrollment status does not require formal admission to the university. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not guarantee regular admission to the University.

Before applying as a non-degree student, please know what course(s) you want to take and when they are offered. You can view NCU’s course offering below (change the school to “ADP” for evening/online courses):

Registration Information

Once you apply for non-degree admission, an Enrollment Advisor will reach out to you to confirm your registration. Your Enrollment Advisor will be the one to register you for your courses. No registration action is needed on your end. Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive an email containing your NCU ID and other important information/next steps.

Non-degree students may be asked to provide transcripts from previously attended colleges/universities in order to verify the satisfactory completion of past coursework prior to enrolling in certain courses at NCU.

Registration for non-degree students opens up two weeks before the start of courses. You can complete a maximum of 30 credits as a non-degree seeking student.

Tuition and Fees

$300 per credit plus a $100 technology fee each semester you are enrolled in courses at NCU.

Grades and Transcript Information

Non-degree students are given grades and will hold an academic record with NCU. You can access final grades and/or request your official NCU transcript by using your MyNCU student account. In order to request an official transcript, you must have a $0 balance with the Business Office.
