Non-degree Seeking Graduate Student

This is a category for students who do not intend to seek an advanced degree from Alabama A&M University. Persons seeking to enroll as non-degree students must possess an undergraduate degree from a regionally or nationally accredited institution. They also must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale).

Non-degree students usually include:

1. Those who intend to transfer graduate credit earned at Alabama A&M University to other institutions.

2. Those who intend to use graduate credits earned for professional certification, except for teacher education certification programs.

3. Those that enroll for personal satisfaction.

A non-degree student who subsequently seeks full admission must satisfy requirements for admission to the specific program. Non-degree students are only allowed to transfer a maximum of 9 semester hours if they get approval to enter an AAMU graduate degree program.

Immigration laws should be consulted to determine eligibility of international students seeking non-degree status. In many instances, a non-degree seeking international student may not qualify for the issuance of the Form I-20.

*Non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid
