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.
