Non-Degree Seeking Students
Non-degree admission is designed to meet the needs of mature, part-time students who do not wish to pursue a degree, or who are transient or visiting students. Courses taken in this status may not be used to meet collegeadmission requirements. Students who wish to take a course without a graded credit may choose to audit courses. |
Students on non-degree status are ineligible to receive financial aid or student employment; nor are they eligible to participate in student government or intercollegiate athletics. They are also ineligible to receive benefits from any veteran’s program.
Transcripts from previous institutions, high school, and/or results of college entrance exams may be required to assure readiness for college-level courses. Non-degree students are subject to the same university regulations as regular students.
Changing from Non-Degree Status
A non-degree student in good academic standing at SENMC must submit a formal admissions application for a change of status from non-degree to degree seeking. Requirements to regular admission must be met. Non-degree students may not transfer more than 30 credits from this status to any undergraduate degree program with the exception of students participating in a high school concurrent enrollment program.
