Non-Degree Seeking Students

Non-Degree Seeking (NDS) program overview

  • ECPI provides opportunities for individuals, including Active Duty Military students, who are not seeking a degree, but need to take courses at ECPI for college credit. Typically, these are courses taken for transfer credit or degree completion purposes.

Non-Degree Seeking students need to be aware that:

  • Certain courses may require prerequisites and those must still be met.
  • Non-degree seeking students are not permitted to take graduate level courses.
  • Non-degree seeking students are not eligible to receive Financial Aid.
  • Degree-seeking students receive priority registration for courses.
  • Permission to take a course as a non-degree student does not guarantee admission to degree-seeking status.
