Non-Degree Seeking

The non-degree seeking category consists of students who do not wish to pursue a graduate degree at Doane College, but want to take graduate courses.

Although there is no limit on the amount of credit that may be earned, if a non-degree-seeking student later wishes to pursue the Master of Education degree at Doane College, no more than 12 credits earned while in the non-degree status may be applied toward the graduate degree.

If a student feels there are extenuating circumstances, the student may petition the Graduate Committee of the Whole to accept more than 12 hours completed as a non-degree-seeking student.

A student who has taken coursework as a non-degree-seeking student and who later wishes to be admitted into a degree program must complete all requirements for full admission and all program requirements currently in effect, instead of those in effect when the coursework began.
