At the discretion of the institution, persons who desire instruction without wishing to earn a credential may be admitted as non-degree/noncredential students. These students are exempt from taking the assessment instrument; however, all students (including high school students) must meet individual pre-requisites such as those for entry-level English and mathematics courses.
Students may declare credential seeking status after meeting regular admission requirements. The college may review and reclassify credential seeking status in accordance with policies established at each individual college. Non-degree/non-credential students are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid programs.
Credit earned before a student meets admission requirements will be counted toward a credential.
