You are here:
If you’re a baccalaureate- or master's-prepared nurse who hopes to pursue a graduate degree at a later date—or have not yet completed all admission requirements—you may apply for non-degree/coursework-only (CWO) status. This allows you to enroll in and register for non-clinical graduate-level nursing courses.
You may take a maximum of two courses under CWO status. However, space is limited in many classes and degree-seeking students get priority consideration.
If you’re a non-degree student but expect to pursue full-degree status later, you must submit a second application to the School of Nursing and follow all admission policies. As a CWO student, you cannot qualify for financial aid and aren’t guaranteed admission to future graduate degree programs. If you’re accepted as a degree student, no more than two classes may be taken and counted toward your future graduate degree program.
