For Non-degree Seeking Students who wish to take graduate courses but do not want to pursue a graduate degree.

Not Advanced Degree Candidate (NADC): This classification is for those students with a baccalaureate degree who wish to take graduate courses but do not wish to pursue a graduate degree. Students in the NADC classification must pay graduate fees and must be admitted to a graduate department or program. Students may be admitted with less than a 3.0 GPA, but they must maintain a 3.0 GPA once admitted. Admission as NADC does not obligate the department/program to admit the student to a degree program at a later date. These students may take any course for which they have the necessary prerequisites except those at the 700- or 800-level. A maximum of six hours of graduate course work with grades of “B” or higher (nine for non-thesis master’s and doctoral degree) earned under NADC classification (and post-baccalaureate – class 5) may be applied to graduate degree requirements. Time limits on the course work would be the same as for transfer credit. Please visit for more information.
