Visiting Student Registration for Online Courses

An individual requesting permission to register as a non-degree student is assigned a special student status. Included in this status are individuals who want to take courses for professional advancement, personal development, or individuals from other universities wishing to transfer credit back to their university, but who do not want to earn a degree.

A visiting student is allowed to take up to nine credit hours at the School of Engineering without formally applying for admission. If a visiting student desires to continue at the School of Engineering as a matriculated student in a graduate degree or certificate program, they must follow the formal application process.

Individuals who wish to register for an online course must fill out our Visiting Student form, which can be downloaded below. Upon completion of this form, you will need to submit in a copy of your:

  • Transcripts
  • Resume
  • Photo ID

International applicants must also submit:

  • TOEFL Score
  • WES evaluated transcripts (if undergraduate and graduate university is not in the United States)

    For further information on how to utilize the World Education Services (WES) for transcript evaluation, visit
