If you wish to enroll in our courses but do not plan to pursue a degree, you may enroll as a non-degree or non-matriculating student.
If you are a current UB student, register as normal and check with your advisor about whether our courses will count towards University requirements.
Non-degree students are only allowed to take approved elective courses.
- Do NOT qualify for financial aid (including loans). View tuition rates.
- Do NOT qualify for the reduced out-of-state online tuition rate or comprehensive fee waivers.
- May only register for a maximum of 6 credits in any given semester.
- May only register for graduate courses listed as electives.
- Are only admitted for one semester and must obtain permission to take additional non-degree courses in subsequent semesters.
Our MSW degree options require 9 credits of electives. Therefore, we do not recommend taking more than a total of 9 elective credits without first speaking with a School of Social Work admissions representative.
