Non-Degree Seeking Admission and Enrollment
Individuals not pursuing a master’s degree may apply to enroll in courses not filled by Forensic Sciences students. Course openings are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date of admission as a non-degree seeking graduate student. Applicants must provide a transcript showing an undergraduate degree conferred.
This program is designed for:
- Individuals interested in a specific course
- Qualified applicants not admitted to the master’s program because of limited space
- Potential applicants wanting to take a trial course before applying
