Students who do not intend to enroll in a degree program may register for a limited number of courses and receive academic credit if admitted as non-degree students.
Steps to Apply as a Non-Degree Student: (A printable version may be found HERE.)
- Initiate an application online: apply.vanderbilt.edu.
- Alert the Office of Admissions that your non-degree application has been initiated. Our office will manually waive many of the regular application requirements to expedite submission.
- Complete the specific application requirements for the non-degree application.
Applications and supporting documents must be completed and on file in the Office of Admissions by July 1 for the fall semester and by November 1 for the spring semester.
Please note: Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid.
