Non-Degree Seeking Students
Non-degree seeking students who have received a baccalaureate degree are advised that no credit earned while enrolled may be applied at a later date to a graduate program. These post-baccalaureate students may enroll in undergraduate courses for which they possess the necessary prerequisites, but may not enroll in courses restricted to graduate students only. Students who wish to take courses at the graduate level (600 and above) must contact the Graduate School for information concerning admission requirements for Advanced Special Student status.
Non-degree seeking students who do not have a baccalaureate degree must submit transcripts and meet regular admission standards. Transcripts are not required from students with baccalaureate degrees from a regionally accredited institution. Because of space limitation, several departments require that permission be given in advance to register for classes as a non-degree student. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for further information.
Non-degree seeking students who are taking classes to transfer immediately back to another institution may apply without academic transcripts. These applicants must, in lieu of transcripts, submit official documentation from that institution granting permission to take course work at the University of Maryland for that particular semester.
Returning Students and Veterans
Students returning to the University of Maryland after a separation of five calendar years may petition the appropriate dean to have a number of grades and credits from courses previously taken at the University of Maryland, College Park, removed from the calculation of their cumulative grade point averages and from the credits applied toward graduation requirements. See information under "Registration, Academic Requirements and Regulations" in chapter 4.
