What is a nondegree student?
A nondegree student takes individual courses without pursuing a full degree program at Arizona State University. Nondegree students can study at the undergraduate or graduate level.
Nondegree undergraduate and graduate students are limited in the number of credit hours they can take a semester. Additionally, they may only apply 12 to 15 credit hours, completed in a nondegree status, to an academic program if they choose to pursue a degree in the future.
