Two Types of Non-Degree Seeking Students

Prerequisite Seeking

Someone who needs to take courses to become eligible to begin a predefined curriculum/program. This student should only be taking the required coursework in preparation for the program, not courses that are a part of the curriculum/program for which they are attempting to qualify.

Non-Degree Seeking

Someone taking courses for personal fulfillment or seeking to increase their GPA (or credit totals) in hopes of gaining access to a program. A student in this situation may pursue any coursework they choose and it is up to St. Scholastica to decide if this coursework may be applied toward a degree. Non-degree-seeking students are not eligible for financial aid.
