admission in this category is for students who do not want to gain a degree. for example: teaching certificate or recertification. if you wish to obtain a degree at a later date, then you will have to re-apply to the appropriate degree program. in general, the only supportive material required for non-degree admission is an official transcript showing an appropriate background and confirming the awarding of a bachelor’s degree or higher. be sure to check with the department to ensure you have the appropriate materials. in most cases, international students are not eligible for non degree status.
all supporting materials required by the graduate school should be attached to the online application for admission. these may include personal statements, unofficial copies of transcripts and resumes/cvs. other supporting materials, such as portfolioses, required specifically by individual programs should be submitted based upon the guidelines provided by the program.please note: official transcripts are only required of those applicants who are offered admission. therefore, do not mail an official transcript unless you receive an offer of admission.
