Non-degree seeking students are just that: students who are not seeking a degree. Even though they don’t wish to complete an entire degree program, these students apply for admission with a non-degree seeking status so that they can take a course or two per semester from Truman.
Non-degree seeking students typically include:
If you are not a regularly-enrolled student at Truman State University, but are interested in taking a course or two with us, we would love to have you!
Non-degree seeking students may apply to take one or two courses (up to 8 hours) per semester for credit or non-credit (audit) at Truman.
Visiting students who are enrolled at other colleges or universities and who are interested in taking one or two courses at Truman for transfer credit must be in good standing at their institutions.
The Admission Office retains the right to request full academic documentation from non-degree seeking or visiting students.
Admission as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee eventual acceptance as a degree-seeking student.
Students who eventually decide to seek a degree must complete the full application for admission and submit all school transcripts.
The University reserves the right to limit the amount of non-degree seeking credit that may be applied toward a degree at Truman if taken prior to completion of application requirements into undergraduate or graduate study.
