The non-degree program allows participants to take classes without having to pursue a degree. Non-degree students do not go through the admission process of the Graduate School. It allows students to take a course or two while they are preparing for the admission or to simply try out a couple of courses before they decide if they want to pursue a master’s degree. The non-degree program offers courses to fit the needs of working engineers with a demanding and busy schedule. Admission to non-degree does not imply admission to a UConn degree program. Non-degree students are classified as non-degree-seeking. Grades earned as a non-degree student will go toward the student’s UConn grade point average or may be transferred to another institution based on that institution’s transfer policy. All students taking MENG classes as a non-degree student are subject to the same program fee as matriculated MENG students.

Please note that only 6 credits (two courses) of non-degree coursework with a grade of “B” or better can be applied toward a masters degree at UConn, including any external (non-UConn) course transfers.
