 Graduate Non-Degree Students 



Classification as a Graduate Non-Degree Applicant: A non-degree student will not be classified as a degree or certificate seeking student; therefore, credits earned may not count toward future degree or certificate programs at Slippery Rock University.

A graduate student may earn up to a maximum of 12 graduate credits, taken at any time, while classified as non-degree.

Applicants must apply online for each semester they wish to study as a non-degree student.
