An applicant who wishes to pursue studies for personal growth and who does not wish to work toward a formal degree at Great Falls College MSU may apply as a non-degree student.
Great Falls College MSU has full semester long courses as well as short term training opportunities. Many students will take classes as non-degree seeking at Great Falls College MSU while attending another college or university, to fulfill graduation requirements at their home school. Non degree seeking students have the same opportunities to speak with the recruiter or advisors prior to registering for course work.
Acceptance into this category does not constitute acceptance into a degree-granting program. All applicants should have sufficient educational background to qualify for the course or courses in which enrollment is sought and must certify on the application form that they have graduated from high school or have passed the General Education Development Test (GED).
As a non-degree seeking student, you are only required to submit an application for admission and pay the $30 application fee.
However, a few important things to be aware of:
- Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid
- If taking 6 credits or less, we only need the application for admission
- If taking more than 6 credits, we will also need immunization records showing proof of 2 MMR immunizations
- Check the course description to see if the class you want to take has prerequisites. We may need test scores or at minimum, unofficial transcripts to prove you have met the prerequisite requirement.
Non-degree students who later wish to change to a degree program must furnish required supporting documentation and meet all regular admission requirements.
