Review Admissions Standards and Deadlines

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

  • Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or seeking asylum or refugee status
  • Have graduated from an accredited high school/secondary school or obtained the equivalent by passing the GED or HiSET exam if you wish to take undergraduate level courses.
  • Have earned a 4-year bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent) at an accredited college or university if you wish to take graduate level courses.
  • Not be currently active in a degree seeking program at the University of Utah
  • Meet our English proficiency requirement if you are not a U.S. citizen

The University of Utah cannot issue an I-20 or maintain an F1 student SEVIS record for non-degree seeking students. F1 students already in the US must send an approval letter from their current school, allowing them to study at the U without transferring their SEVIS record, before an admission decision can be made.

All applications are evaluated in the order in which they are received, and notification of admissions decisions are sent on a rolling basis.

We encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

Remember
