Non-Degree Seeking Students in HCC

Students interested in learning more about HCC without committing to a graduate program may be interested in the non-degree program. As a non-degree seeking student you can take up to two graduate courses without being admitted into a graduate program.  Many of our part-time MS students began their graduate careers as non-degree seeking students to get a feel for our classes and juggling school and work. After completing one or two classes, they then applied for the MS program.

Application materials for Non-degree seeking students can obtained from the UMBC Graduate School’s website.

Permission to register for classes for non-degree seeking students is dependent upon seat availability that semester.
