If you decide not to take a course you have registered for, it is your responsibility to drop the course by the liability deadlines. Otherwise you will be obligated to pay for the class. View financial liability deadlines.

Please note that non-degree students:

  • 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 waiver.
  • 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.
