Applicants 21 years or older
An applicant who is at least 21 years old and does not meet the regular freshman admission requirements may apply for admission as a non-degree-seeking student.

Non-degree-seeking students may enroll in a maximum of 12 semester hours during a regular term, 6 semester hours during a five-week summer term, or equivalent hours for alternate terms as determined by the university. To transition from non-degree-seeking to degree-seeking status, students must satisfactorily complete 12 hours with a “C” or better average in the general education core.

Once admitted to a degree program, a maximum of 18 semester hours credit earned as a non-degree-seeking student may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree if approved by the dean of the college from which the degree is sought.

To clear adult non-degree status, the student must pass a minimum of 12 semester hours with a minimum 2.0 grade point average.).
Applicants without a high school diploma
Applicants who have not graduated from a regionally accredited high school and were not home-schooled must submit qualifying scores on the General Education Development Test (GED) and any transcripts reflecting academic performance in high school. Home-schooled students must present portfolios summarizing his or her home-school education. Submission of ACT or SAT scores is strongly encouraged. Applicants may be required, at the discretion of the university, to appear for an on-campus interview.
