What You Need to Know
There are certain requirements if you are applying as a nondegree-seeking or reentry student.
You are considered an applicant for nondegree (temporary) admission if you (1) have earned a baccalaureate degree and (2) do not intend to pursue another degree and are seeking only personal or professional enrichment.
You must demonstrate that you have the necessary preparation for any course in which you wish to enroll, and you may be required to obtain approval from the course instructor.
You may later seek regular admission and request that courses you completed while in nondegree admission status be considered for application toward a degree. The school, division, or department that offers the program you are seeking will determine the applicability of these courses. Typically no more than 12 credits will be considered.
We will consider you an applicant for reentry if you meet one of the following sets of requirements:
- You previously were regularly admitted to a Purdue Fort Wayne graduate program
- You have not registered for classes at Purdue Fort Wayne for more than one year (or at any other Purdue University campus for more than one semester)
- You wish to resume your studies in the program in which you were last enrolled
- You previously were admitted to a Purdue Fort Wayne graduate program in a nondegree classification
- You have not attended Purdue Fort Wayne for more than one year
- You still meet the criteria for nondegree graduate admission status
- You wish to resume your studies under this classification
You must file a reentry application with our Admissions office. Since your reentry application will be subject to approval under applicable admission and academic policies of the Purdue Fort Wayne graduate program in which you were last enrolled, you must allow ample time for your reentry application to be processed.
