Non-degree students

Financial aid awards for fall 2024

This year (2024-2025 academic year) it will be easier for families to complete the FAFSA with the streamlined FAFSA application. The new FAFSA form is now available. UMassD anticipates sending award letters in late spring.

We encourage students who are not UMass Dartmouth degree candidates to register for courses as non-degree students.

There are many reasons why a person might wish to take one or more courses at the university without seeking a degree. When feasible, we allow qualified students who are not UMass Dartmouth degree candidates to register for courses as non-degree students. They may register only for courses for which they are qualified and in which space is available. They will be held to a strict limit in the total number of credits for which they may enroll as non-degree students.
