Non-Degree Seeking Student

Interested in test-driving our graduate classes before you apply to a program? Perhaps you’re an educator looking for a course to fulfill a certification or Read to Succeed Literacy requirement. Maybe you want to prove to yourself that you can succeed in graduate school. Come give Converse a try!

Students may apply for “special status,” as a non-degree seeking student. Any student intending to complete a degree program may not exceed 12 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student.

Students not currently admitted or enrolled in a Masters or Ed.S. program at Converse College may apply as a non-degree (special status) student.

  • You will need to make payment arrangements with the Student Billing Coordinator. You will not be registered for the course until arrangements have been completed.
