UConn Master of Engineering

Take a Course as a Non-Degree Student

There are many reasons why you may want or need to take one or two engineering courses at UConn.

Participating as a non-degree student allows you to take up to two courses while you prepare for admission to a graduate program or to simply try out a couple of courses before deciding if you want to pursue a master's degree or certificate program.

The non-degree option offers courses to fit the needs of working engineers with a demanding and busy schedule, allowing you to take a course or two without having to pursue a degree.

Non-degree students do not go through the admission process of the Graduate School. Instead, those interested in non-degree status should complete the PE internal application form and forward to soeprofed@uconn.edu along with your resume and an unofficial transcript from your undergraduate career.  Taking courses as a non-degree student does not imply admission to a UConn degree program. Non-degree students are classified as non-degree-seeking.

Grades earned as a non-degree student will go toward the student’s UConn grade point average or may be transferred to another institution based on that institution’s transfer policy.

All students taking MENG or certificate classes as a non-degree student are subject to the same program fee as matriculated MENG and certificate students. Please note that only 6 credits (two courses) of non-degree coursework with a grade of “B-” or better can be applied toward a master’s degree or certificate at UConn.

Approximate costs associated with enrolling as a non-degree student for a 3-credit course are $3900.
