The Department of Occupational Therapy Education recognizes that some courses or workshops may be of interest to individuals, but enrolling in graduate school may not suit him or her. The “non-degree-seeking student” option allows individuals to enroll in specific courses for additional learning or to explore graduate-level education before committing to a degree program.
Some application requirements may be waived for non-degree-seeking students, and admission under this status does not affect acceptance into a degree-granting program later.
Timeline: All materials from non-degree-seeking applicants must be received by July 1 for the Fall semester, December 1 for the Spring semester, and May 1 for the Summer session.The application-to-enrollment process takes at least three weeks.
