Non-Degree Seeking students
The Non-Degree Seeking status is designed for part-time students who do not seek an academic
degree at Columbia College. Enrollment as a Non-Degree Seeking student neither guarantees
automatic admission to degree seeking status nor does it necessarily impact an admission decision.
Non-Degree Seeking students in the Day Program must earn a minimum 2.0 grade point average and
must reapply each semester.
Non-Degree Seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. Students enrolling
at Columbia College under this status may be considered for degree seeking status
in a subsequent term by completing
the regular application process.
Students who wish to apply for Non-Degree Seeking status must complete the online application for undergraduate admission.
Enrollment is on a space-available basis only. Course selections may be limited. Students under
this status must be cleared for enrollment through the Office for Academic Affairs.
Non-Degree Seeking students must provide proof that course prerequisites have been met.
Non-Degree Seeking students who enroll in
twelve or more hours in the Day program are considered full-time students. Enrolling as a Non-Degree
Seeking student does not negate the residence hall requirement.
