Get UW Credit Without Applying for Admission

Non-Degree EnrollmentNon-Degree Enrollment

Non-Degree Enrollment allows anyone to take regular UW courses and earn credit. Students study alongside degree students with UW professors, earn UW credit and are eligible for some (though not all) student services. Enrollment as a non-degree student requires prior written approval from the academic department that offers your class and is on a standby basis, which means you are not guaranteed a space in the class.
