AUA invites students who are interested in AUA to sample our courses on an individual basis prior to applying or enrolling in our academic programs. Such students are called non-degree students. Non-degree students can receive credit for individual courses and later apply this credit toward completion of the desired degree after they are admitted to the corresponding academic program.

Prospective non-degree students should inquire about the admissions criteria for non-degree students from the academic program offering the course that is of interest to them. Academic programs may allow non-degree students to take specific courses for a grade or on a pass/fail basis. The aggregate total courses taken by a non-degree student in any program shall not exceed 25% of the minimum number of credits for that academic program’s degree/certificate.

More information will be available about the application procedures for non-degree students in late-October 2013.
