Non-Degree Seeking Students





Non-degree seeking students are those who wish to enroll in classes, but are not planning to complete a degree.




  • Check Admission Standards

    To be eligible to apply as a non-degree seeking student, you must:

    Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or be seeking asylum or refugee status. Students wishing to attend on a visa may be eligible for non-degree seeking status, however, they will be granted admission for one term only. The University of Utah cannot issue an I-20 or maintain an F1 student SEVIS record for non-degree seeking students. Permanent residents, asylees, refugees, and students on a visa must meet our English proficiency requirement.

    Have graduated from an accredited high school/secondary school or obtained a GED.

    Currently not active in a degree seeking program at the University of Utah.

    Students who apply for an undergraduate degree program (i.e., as a freshman, transfer, etc.) and are denied will not be admitted as a non-degree seeking student for that same term. Students who apply for a graduate degree program and are denied may, however, be considered for admission as a non-degree seeking student.

  • Complete the Online Application

    Apply for admission by submitting the application for undergraduate admissions and indicating “non-matriculated” in the student type section. Be sure to fill out the application completely, including cumulative GPA from all universities you have previously attended. If you graduated high school fewer than three years ago, also report your cumulative unweighted high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores.

    Once an application has been started, you will be able to save and continue at any time until submitted. Once submitted, changes will no longer be possible.

  • Pay the Application Fee

    The application fee for undergraduate domestic students is $55. The application fee for undergraduate international students is $65. This fee is non-refundable.

    The application fee can be paid online within the application, by phone, by mailed check or money order, or in person at the Student Services Building on the campus map. The application must be submitted 24 hours before the application fee can be paid in person or by phone.

    The application fee may be waived for applicants who provide documentation of financial hardship. More information on how to qualify can be found here.
