Non-degree Program

Students who wish to take only a few courses at Wagner must apply as a non-degree student by the appropriate deadlines; however, non-degree applicants are not eligible for scholarship consideration.

Non-degree applicants must possess the same qualifications required for acceptance into a degree program. Applicants must undergo the same application review process as degree-seeking candidates. The non-degree program is designed for public service professionals who are not interested in obtaining a master’s degree from NYU Wagner and are only seeking a maximum of 16 credits (generally four classes) worth of course work to help them sharpen certain skills sets in their professional development.
