Non-Degree Seeking Students

Not sure you're ready?

Test it out before you jump in all the way.  Try a course as a non-degree seeking student.  You can take up to 12 credits that will count towards your degree, if you decide later to pursue this option. Although there are no specific admission criteria, non-degree admittance will only be awarded to students that have demonstrated the ability to successfully complete a graduate course. Let us know if we can answer any questions or if you would like to speak with a program advisor.

Non-degree Seeking Students

A non-degree seeking student is one who wishes to take courses in the Master of Science in Nutrition Program but does not intend to pursue the master’s degree at the time of application. The non-degree seeking student must provide the following admissions requirements in order to take classes in the Master of Science in Nutrition Program:

  • completed online application form
  • official transcripts of all undergraduate, graduate, and professional education
  • non-refundable application fee of $50

Non-degree seeking students are not guaranteed future acceptance into the Master of Science in Nutrition Program. If after taking classes in the program, non-degree seeking students may become degree seeking status by applying to the M.S. in Nutrition program as a new student and meeting all the requirements for admission. If accepted into the degree program, appropriate credits taken as a non-degree seeking student will be applied automatically toward the degree. Non-degree seeking students can enroll only in a maximum of 4 courses or 12 credit hours.

Upon receipt of the completed application and required materials, the Committee on Admissions will review the applicant's file and make recommendations to the program director. All final decisions on admission are made by the dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine.
