Non-Degree Studies

AUA offers academic opportunities to individuals interested in sampling a range of graduate courses and who prefer not to pursue a degree program. Pending space availability, such individuals may pursue their studies under the non-degree student status.  Such non-degree students are given access to facilities and services and hold most privileges as any other AUA student.

Non-degree students receive credit for individual courses which can later be applied towards the completion of a degree program. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not guarantee future admission to a degree or certificate program at AUA. For more information about non-degree enrollment status, visit here.  

Application Requirements

Prospective non-degree students should refer to the non-degree status policy at for detailed information regarding the non-degree student status acceptance process and standards for enrollment. The typical non-degree student should hold an undergraduate degree and be proficient in English. Proof of English proficiency should be provided through the TOEFL iBT or IELTS exams. In rare cases, highly qualified undergraduates in their final year of undergraduate studies may be admitted at the Program Chair’s discretion. Academic programs may allow non-degree students to take specific courses for a grade or on a pass/fail basis.

Upon receiving the approval of the respective Program Chair and the Registrar, an individual becomes a non-degree student and may register for one or more course(s) per term. The total number of credits which a non-degree student may apply toward an AUA graduate degree shall not exceed 25% of the credits required for that degree. Non-degree students must remain in good standing to continue to take courses at AUA.

Non-degree studies is currently not an option at the undergraduate level.
