What If I'm Not an Admitted U of M Student?
If you are not formally admitted to a University of Minnesota degree or certificate program, you are considered a non-degree (sometimes called visiting or non-admitted) student. This includes students who may be:
- admitted for a future semester at the University of Minnesota
- degree-seeking at another institution but taking classes at the University
- high school students
Non-admitted students follow different registration procedures, are exempt from some types of fees, and have access to most University resources.
If you have any additional questions about your status, contact the College of Continuing & Professional Studies at 612-624-4000; firstname.lastname@example.org.
