The non-degree program is designed for public service professionals who are interested in sharpening certain skill sets to advance their professional development, but do not want to pursue a full master’s degree. Non-degree programs consist of a maximum of 16 credits (generally four classes).
Non-degree applicants must possess the same qualifications required for acceptance into a degree program, and must undergo the same application review process. Applicants must apply by the appropriate deadlines, and are not eligible for scholarship consideration.
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.
