You may opt to take a class on a non-degree basis. You do not have to be accepted into a graduate program to take a class as a non-degree student, although only two graduate courses with a grade of “B” or better may be applied toward a degree. To take a class offered through the Master of Engineering Program, please contact us at:

Students may take as many courses as they desire, however only up to six credits of advanced course work taken on a non-degree basis at the University of Connecticut may be included on a Master’s degree plan of study, provided the following conditions are met:

(1) grades earned in such course work are B (not B-) or higher;

(2) such course work is within the six-year limit for completion of Master’s degree requirements; and

(3) such credits have not been applied toward any other degree, here or elsewhere (already completed or to be completed in the future).

Inclusion of non-degree course work on the plan of study requires the consent of your major advisor and is subject to the approval of the Graduate School.

Because personal statements are personal, there is no one type or style of writing that is set out as a model. That can be liberating; it can also be maddening. But while every personal statement is unique in style, its purpose is the same.

A personal statement is your introduction to an admissions selection committee.

It does not need to be long or complicated and should not be more than a paragraph or two.

The interview committee is interested in getting a better picture of you. They are interested in your background, your aspirations and goals and how you believe the master of engineering program will help you achieve your goals and enhance your career opportunities.

What you choose to say in your statement tells the committee what your priorities are.

Most importantly, a personal statement is authentic. Don't make the mistake of trying to guess what the committee is looking for, and don't write what you think they want to hear. They want to know you.
