How to Apply - Non-Degree Students (Special Students)

Non-degree students (also called special students) are those who wish to take courses during the academic year but who do not intend to work toward a degree at the University of Evansville. The following type of students qualify as special students:

  • Visiting/Transient Students – Students currently enrolled at another accredited college or university who wish to take courses at Evansville but plan to graduate from their home institution.
  • Concurrent Students – Students who are currently enrolled in high school or are homeschooled and wish to take courses at Evansville.
  • College Graduate Students – Students who have a college degree but need additional undergraduate credit to earn special licensing or prepare for graduate school. Students in the Transitions to Teaching Program fall under this category.
  • Non-traditional Students – Non-degree seeking students who have graduated from high school or earned their GED, regardless of age, who wish to take courses for personal enrichment.

Admission Requirements

  • Special Student Application and application fee of $10
