Enrolling as a nondegree student
Whether you want to enhance career skills, learn something new, or need to complete prerequisites for a graduate program, you can register as a nondegree-seeking student (also known as a visiting student).
Students dismissed from, or on probation at, IU or another college or university are generally not admitted to the nondegree program.
- You must have a high school diploma or GED to be eligible for the non-degree program. If you are a high school student who would like to enroll in classes at IUB, you may be interested in the OPEN program.
- In the nondegree program, you will receive a grade and credit for each class you take. If you wish to ONLY audit a class, or take classes without receiving a grade or credit, please refer to Student Central on Union.
- Limits on nondegree credit hours: If you do not already hold a baccalaureate degree, you are limited to a total of 18 credit hours throughout your career as
nondegreestudent. There is no limit to the number of courses you can take if you have already received a baccalaureate degree. If you take 18 credit hours before holding an undergraduate degree, but go on to earn a degree, you can return after your degree as a non-degree student with no limit on your credit hours.
