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 that can later be applied towards completing a degree program. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not guarantee future admission to a degree or enrollment to a certificate program at AUA. For more information, visit the Non-Degree Status Policy  


AUA offers ten graduate programs housed in four Colleges in the fields listed to the right. Visit the website of your preferred major to learn more about the program, goals and student learning outcomes, available tracks, courses, faculty, program updates, alumni successes, and more. AUA’s Non-Degree Status offers academic opportunities to individuals interested in taking select graduate courses but are not necessarily interested in pursuing a degree.


We select students who have the skills and ability to succeed at AUA and to assure that AUA is well suited to their educational and career goals. 

Non-degree applicants should hold an undergraduate degree, be proficient in English, and submit a complete non-degree application along with all required supplements. Once you submit your application, the Office of Admissions will screen it for technical eligibility. We will then forward complete and eligible applications to the respective Academic Program for a thorough review. This may include inviting you to an interview.

You must receive approval from the Program Chair of your preferred program of interest prior to starting your non-degree application. In deciding whether to approve a non-degree application, the Program Chair considers the burden on the program and the preparedness of the applicant for study. You may register for one or more approved course(s) per semester if accepted. Should you choose not to enroll in at least one course during your semester of acceptance, we will terminate your non-degree status and you will need to reapply in the future.

Should you choose to apply to an AUA Master’s program in the future, note that you can transfer up to 25% of the total number of credits required for that degree. Non-degree students must remain in good academic standing to continue to take courses at AUA. Visit the non-degree status policy here for more information.
