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.
Due to constraints relevant to US immigration regulations, applicants who will need an F-1 or J-1 student visa are not eligible to apply to non-degree programs.
