Non-degree Graduate Credit
It's possible to take courses on a post-baccalaureate degree basis as a non-degree seeking student. This doesn't guarantee future admission to our graduate programs. However, it's a way to receive graduate credit for professional advancement, or to try a course or two at the Institute.
Some graduate-level courses may not transfer to a degree program. Consult with the graduate program you're interested in to find out if the courses will transfer.
The University of Minnesota Graduate School allows up to 12 credits of a Ph.D. program to be taken as transfer credits, including non-degree seeking credits.
The Associate Director of Curriculum and Student Services is authorized to sign the registration request for graduate credit form for the Institute of Child Development.
