Admission to Non-Degree (Certificate) Courses

Applicants with less than a high school diploma or GED shall be classified as non-degree-eligible and shall not be allowed to enroll in a course creditable toward an associate degree. These students may be eligible for federal student financial aid but will be allowed to register for certain certificate programs. 

An applicant may be admitted to a course not creditable toward an associate degree and to a program comprised exclusively of courses not creditable to an associate degree provided that he/she provides the required documentation, is at least 17 years of age, and has not been enrolled in secondary education for at least one calendar year (or upon the recommendation of the local superintendent). In addition, a student may be allowed to enroll in such “institutional credit only” courses as developmental English, mathematics, and reading.
