If you are interested in improving your skills and getting a start on a graduate degree, it’s not too late to apply. NDSU’s Grad School is waiving application fees for all non-degree applicants through Aug. 15. And to make it easier, no transcripts, recommendations, or statement of purpose will be required.
If you have an undergraduate degree, you can enroll as a non-degree student. The program is great for:
- People who want personal growth and to improve their skills
- People seeking courses for career advancement
- People who plan to work toward an advanced degree. Up to 10 credits can be taken under the non-degree program and then transferred to any official program of study. Participating as a non-degree student often helps determine which graduate degree program to pursue.
Some examples of courses include: professional writing, leadership and managerial skills, or courses in business, public health, public policy, gerontology, or family financial planning.
