Graduate Non-Degree Seeking

Non-Degree graduate students are students with a bachelor's degree who are interested in recertification or wish to earn up to 12 semester hours at a graduate level. Visit our Undergraduate Non-Degree Seeking page for more information.

  • Transient students are college students who wish to take courses at Lander and transfer the credit back to their home institution.  Students will need a Coursework Approval Form from their home institution.
  • Teacher Recertification is for K-12 teachers who are seeking certificate renewal in their particular discipline or possibly in another discipline.
  • Auditing Courses are for students who are interested in taking a course for personal interest.

Non-degree status is not a "trial admission" status or one for candidates who apply too late to submit credentials for consideration for regular admission.

Applicants who have been officially denied admission as a degree-seeking student, are not eligible to apply as a non-degree student.
