Non-Degree Students


The University of Wyoming is proud to offer students who wish to take courses without an official degree status. This is a perfect opportunity for students who wish to pursue higher education courses without the current intention of obtaining a degree and flexibility to discover what interests them without advising appointments. If your plans ever change while you are taking coursework, you can always change your status at a later time.


A couple of things to keep in mind with this admission status:

  • The non-degree admission status is a special status that is not available to international students.
  • This status is not available to students who have a suspension status at UW or any other college or university.
  • Non-degree students CANNOT receive financial aid or UW scholarships


Select the student type that best suits you:

Non-Degree Undergraduate Students

Prospective undergraduate and graduate students may elect to enroll in UW undergraduate courses as "non-degree" students.





Non-Degree Graduate Students

Prospective graduate students may elect to enroll in UW graduate courses as "non-degree" students.
