Graduate Non-Degree

Graduate Non-degree

Applicants who are not seeking a graduate degree, but who want to enroll in a course may apply as a non-degree student by submitting the following materials to the Office of Admissions Processing:

  • ApplyTexas.org Graduate application — choose TWU Denton
    • Under the Educational Background tab, Question 03: Initial degree you wish to seek, select "non-degree".
  • Select Semester of entry
  • Must select major for which you wish to take classes in
  • Pay the Application fee.
  • An official transcript listing a bachelor (preferred), master, or doctoral degree.
  • International applicants must submit satisfactory English proficiency scores.

Non-degree seeking students are ineligible for financial aid.

The Dean of the Graduate School, upon recommendation of the student's advisory committee, will determine if it is appropriate to allow non-degree credit hours to be applied towards a degree program. A maximum of 12 graduate credit hours earned by a non-degree student may apply toward a graduate degree.
