Non-Degree Seeking Students

The Non-Degree Application is available for students that wish to take courses at the university and are not associated with a degree program or certificate program.

Types of Students

Non-Degree Applicants typically fall under one of the following categories:

  1. Students who need to complete pre-requisites for another program and are currently not enrolled in a degree seeking program at FIU.
  2. Students who want to take a few courses at FIU but not obtain a Bachelor and/or Master degree.
  3. Students who are visiting from Private Colleges or Out-of-State Schools (not on official student exchange).

Students who are seeking a degree at a public institution of higher education in Florida should fill out the Transient Application online instead of the Non-Degree Seeking Application.

Non-Degree Seeking Applicants should fill out the application in its entirety and submit the appropriate residency documents to the Office of the Registrar. Applications are accepted until the end of the Add/Drop period.  However, additional registration fees may be assessed if the student applies during the Late Registration Period.

All Non-Degree Applicants are assessed a $30.00 application fee upon enrollment.

Applicants will also need to submit immunization records to the University Health Services Complex; not doing so will delay registration.  For more details about the immunization requirements, please visit the Student Health website.

Undergraduate students are limited to 15 credits hours and graduate students are limited to 12 credits hours as a Non-Degree Seeking Student.   Students may choose to take Non-Degree courses during one semester or may complete the credits over multiple semesters.

In preparation for the upcoming term, students planning on enrolling for a course that requires pre-requisites that were completed outside of FIU should contact the department for approval. Departmental contact information can be found online at  http://www.fiu.edu/academics/degree-programs/index.php.

Students attending as a Non-Degree Student are not eligible for Financial Aid.

***If someone other than the student is turning in a Non-Degree Application, he or she must have a signed authorization letter from the student and a copy of the student’s photo id (driver’s license or passport).
