This status is reserved for students who have completed the minimum of a bachelor's degree and the coursework taken is generally intended for specialized certification or professional enhancement and not taken in the pursuit of a degree.  It is advisable that you contact the department offering the courses of interest to ensure that their courses are available to non-degree students.  Typically, graduate post-baccalaureate students may transfer up to twelve (12) graduate-level credit hours to a graduate degree program.  Be sure to visit with the Assistant Director of Recruitment for more information. 

Students in this status are not eligible for financial aid.

  • a 2.8 GPA or higher on all undergraduate work used to complete a bachelor's degree

  • a 3.4 GPA on work for any completed master’s degree.

Grqduate Non-degree Restrictions and Policies:

  • The applicant must meet all of the minimum admission requirements described previously.
  • Admission to graduate non-degree status neither guarantees nor implies subsequent admission to a degree program.
  • Some classes are restricted to degree-seeking students only.  You should contact the graduate program to be sure that the course you wish to take will be available.
  • A student who wishes to change from non-degree unspecified status must have a standardized admissions test on file (if applicable) in the Office of Graduate Admissions at the time application is submitted.
  • If a graduate non-degree student applies to a regular graduate degree program and is admitted, a maximum of twelve (12) hours of graduate credit accumulated while in this non-degree classification as a UNT Dallas student may be counted towards the graduate degree.  Courses applied toward any graduate degree must fall within the time limit specified for the degree.
