Non-degree Student

Students in lecture

Applying as a non-degree student is a great way to continue your education, whether it’s for personal interest, or to upgrade your university record to qualify for graduate school or a professional program. Your courses do not count towards a degree but are credit-courses.

As a non-degree student, you may enrol in arts, science or first-year management courses, for which you have the prerequisites (with some exceptions).  These credits may not be used towards a degree, unless you are subsequently admitted as a second-degree student.

Admission is based on your entire post-secondary academic record and your most recent annual Grade Point Average (GPA).
