Non-degree courses

Students can attend Arizona State University as a non-degree student in order to take individual courses as prerequisites for a desired program, to transfer to another institution or for personal experience instead of applying and pursuing a full degree program. Students will need to apply to ASU and be admitted as an ASU student. All classes taken as a non-degree student will be for earned credit and will be listed on an official ASU transcript with grade earned.
