Non-Degree Seeking Students

Admission as a special, non-degree seeking student is not intended to serve as a means of access to regular, graduate degree-seeking status.  Non-degree students who later wish to pursue a graduate degree must reapply for admission as a graduate degree-seeking student and meet the admission requirements of the Graduate School and be admitted by the academic program.

  1. Submit online application for Graduate Admissions 

  2. Submit Affidavit of Academic Qualifications for Non-Degree Students (waived for graduates of the University of Arkansas)

  3. $60 application fee

  4. If your native language is not English: verification of English proficiency

When we've received your application, fee, and affidavit, we'll review your file and contact you if additional information is needed. Once all materials have been received, allow 3 to 5 business days for this step.

If you are admitted we'll notify you by email and mail your Notice of Admission along with other important information for incoming students.
