Non-Degree Student Application
Non-Degree student status permits persons holding a bachelor’s degree to enroll in UMass Amherst courses, for which they are qualified, provided space is available. Non-degree graduate student status remains valid provided that continuous enrollment is maintained.
A maximum of 6 graduate credits taken under this status may be applied toward a graduate degree if you are later admitted to a UMass degree program. These credits must be within the statute of limitations for that degree, however, and be approved by both the appropriate program and the Graduate Dean.
