Anyone can take credit courses at the University of Minnesota, regardless of whether or not you are in a degree or certificate program. No applications or transcripts required.
As a non-degree or guest student, you'll enjoy access to many University resources, including academic advising. If you are a Minnesota resident over 62 years of age, you can audit or take a U of M course for reduced tuition through the Senior Citizen Education Program (SCEP).

Billing and Payment
When your billing statement is ready, you'll receive an email (at your University email account). Your billing shows all charges (tuition, fees, bookstore, etc.) to your Student Account and due dates.
Non-degree/guest students are required to pay all tuition and fees by the University’s first payment date for the current term. If you are a non-degree student who does not pay, your registration for the current term may be canceled. If you are canceled from a class(es) for nonpayment, contact One Stop Student Services to re-register.
