- You are considered a non-degree student if you wish to take classes toward a degree at another institution, or wish to take classes for enrichment or professional development.
- You will NOT earn a certificate however, you may enroll in the same courses as the certificate program (but you could apply at a later point for the certificate program and apply your classes towards the program. At that point you will need official transcripts sent.)
- Transcripts are not needed to enroll in courses.
