Admitted Graduate Non-Degree - Unclassified (no major)

    Program Description

    Students in this status have been admitted to the University of Oregon but not to a degree program. This is a non-degree-seeking classification intended for students who wish to take graduate level coursework without earning a graduate degree. Students in this classification may apply either as unclassified (no major) or to a specific non-degree major (e.g., licensure programs).

    Do not apply for this status if you wish to pursue a formal graduate degree program.

    Things to Consider:
    -Cost: Admitted Graduate Non-Degree students pay full graduate tuition and are not eligible for federal financial aid.

    -Transfer of Graduate Credit: If you take courses in this status and are later admitted to a University of Oregon graduate program, you may request to transfer some of your credits to a master's or doctoral program.

    -Other enrollment options: Applicants considering this status may wish to consider two other University of Oregon student types:

    -Postbaccalaureate undergraduate: For students pursuing a second bachelor's degree or only intending to take undergraduate coursework.

    -Non-Degree Seeking: Formal admission is not required for this status.

    -Visas: Applicants who need a student visa to enter the United States are not eligible for this status.
