Non-Degree Option

Prospective students interested in our Executive MS in Mechanical Engineering program have the option to enroll in single courses as a non-degree seeking student. Non-degree students enroll in the same courses as master’s degree students without having to pay an additional fee or commit to our executive program. This is the preferred option for students who wish to sample our course offerings, ease into our online format and explore a particular area of interest. Up to 6 credit hours earned as a non-degree student can be applied to the master’s degree program, so long as a student is accepted and in good academic standing.

Contact us to learn more about applying to take single courses as a non-degree seeking student. Course completion does not guarantee admission into our master’s degree program, but it may help satisfy admission requirements.
