Non-Degree Seeking Students

This admission status is for a student who has a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, wishes to register for graduate or undergraduate courses, and is not currently seeking a graduate degree from Bradley University. The student must have achieved a 2.75 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in the last 60 hours of undergraduate coursework. In rare cases, exceptions to the grade point average requirement may be made for non-degree-seeking graduate students with the consent of the Dean of the Graduate School. Non-degree-seeking graduate students do not qualify for scholarships or assistantships.

  • At the time of application, a non-degree-seeking graduate student must provide an Application for Graduate Admission, application fee, and official transcripts. Students who have met the prerequisites may enroll in most graduate courses. Students who enroll in courses for which they are not qualified may be dropped from the course.
  • Admission as a non-degree-seeking graduate student does not constitute admission to a degree program. Should the student wish to apply to a degree program, all requirements for admission to that program must be met. A maximum of 9 semester hours with grades of B or better earned as a non-degree-seeking graduate student may be applied to a degree or certificate program, with approval of the program’s graduate coordinator.
