The non-degree option offers courses to fit the needs of working engineers with a demanding and busy schedule, allowing you to take courses without having to pursue a degree. Participating as a non-degree graduate student allows you to take up to four courses while you prepare for admission to a Master of Engineering program or up to two courses if you decide to pursue an Advanced Engineering certificate. You may also choose to simply try out a couple of courses before deciding if you want to pursue a master's degree or certificate program.
Taking courses as a non-degree graduate student does not imply admission to a UConn degree program. Non-degree graduate students are classified as non-degree seeking.
Non-degree graduate students submit a Non-Degree Graduate application via the Apply to UConn page on the Graduate School website. As part of the application process you will be required to:
- Enter standard biographical information
- Include current employment information
- Upload unofficial transcripts from your undergrad career and any graduate level courses
- Choose up to (2) courses that you are interested in attending
There is no application fee for non-degree graduate students.
All engineering non-degree graduate students are subject to the same program fee as matriculated MENG and certificate students at a cost of $1300 per credit.
