Nondegree-Seeking Students

For students seeking personal or career enrichment, admission as a nondegree student enables you to take classes at the graduate or professional level without completing an entire degree, certificate, or credential program.

Applicants approved to take courses as a nondegree-seeking student should be aware that the courses do not count toward a degree program and do not generally qualify the student for any financial aid. Courses taken as a prerequisite for an APU graduate program may qualify for financial aid. Classes for nondegree students are available at APU’s main campus in Azusa, online, and at APU regional campuses.

To be considered for admission to a course as a nondegree student:

  • Complete the application for admission, selecting the “Nondegree” option under the college dropdown menu
  • Complete the Nondegree Intent Form (PDF)
  • Submit the $45 application fee
  • Submit official transcripts, including proof of a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution

Not all classes are available to nondegree-seeking students. Contact Graduate and Professional Admissions for details on class availability.
