Program Description and Goals

A student who is admitted to SBMI for one or more courses but not admitted to a degree or certificate program is considered a non-degree student. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not entitle a student to admission to an SBMI degree program. A non-degree student is not eligible to receive a certificate or degree. Non-degree students will not be allowed to register for practicum/doctoral courses. Non-degree students can complete a maximum of 9 semester credit hours and must maintain a 3.0/4.0 grade point average.

Please note: F-1 sponsorship is not available for non-degree seeking programs.
