Am I a non-degree applicant? A non-degree student seeks courses for personal or professional development and/or completion of prerequisites for graduate or professional school. Non-degree students are limited to seven credits per term. Financial assistance is not available.

Note: If you have previously attended Marquette University as an undergraduate, regardless of the term you were enrolled or your student status, and are seeking readmission to take a course as a non-degree student, you must complete a Readmission Application (RTS form). The non-degree application below will not be valid because you are required to complete the RTS form. If you have questions about the readmission process, please contact Marquette Central at (414) 288-4000.
