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

Prospective undergraduate and graduate students may elect to enroll in UW undergraduate courses as a "non-degree" student. Under this admission status, undergraduate students may take a maximum of 7 credit hours per semester and cannot apply more than 12 total credits taken as non-degree student toward an undergraduate degree.
Step 2: Get Advised
