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.
