Non-Degree Seeking Student

A non-degree seeking student is one who wishes to enroll in courses at AIU for professional or personal development, but does not intend to pursue a degree at the time of application. Non-degree seeking applicants must submit the following in order to register for classes:

  1. A complete application and Enrollment Agreement for admission (Non-Degree seeking status)
  2. Complete attestation of earned high school diploma or a college degree (associate, bachelor’s, or master’s)

Non-degree seeking students are limited to a maximum of 27 quarter hours, after which the student must apply for admission to a program of study in order to continue taking courses. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for Financial Aid. Enrollment in courses as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee acceptance into a degree program. After taking courses as a non-degree seeking student, the student must provide any other required admissions documentation and meet admissions requirements as noted in the AIU course catalog to become a degree-seeking student.
