Non-degree Application and Deadline (Fall/Winter Terms)

How can I apply as a non-degree seeking student in the fall or winter?

If you already have an undergraduate degree and need to meet graduate school admission requirements or are interested in furthering your education without pursuing a degree, you may consider applying to the university as a non-degree seeking student. You can access our Non-degree Application from our website.

Non-degree admission is available for fall and winter terms only; spring or summer term admission requires the completion of a Guest Application instead. To be admitted as a non-degree student, you must meet at least one of the criteria listed on page two of the Non-degree Application.

Completed applications should be returned to:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions
1220 Student Activities Building
515 E Jefferson St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1316
Fax: 734-936-0740 or email to

The deadline to return completed applications to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is at least two weeks prior to the start of the term. Applications submitted after this time period will be withdrawn.

We will determine admissibility as applications are received and will notify the applicant of a decision by email.

College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) non-degree students may not register before the first day of classes. For information about the registration process, see the Office of the Registrar’s website. Admitted applicants may enroll in whatever courses in LSA they are qualified to take, provided spaces are available.

Continuation for subsequent terms is contingent upon successful performance in courses. Students who wish to continue their non-degree status need not file another application if they register within 12 months from the last completed term.
