Non-Degree Seeking (Special) Students

Individuals who do not wish to enroll as a degree seeking student and plan to take no more than a cumulative total of 20 undergraduate semester credits may become a student by completing a Special Student Registration Form. Special students seeking access to graduate courses are allowed to register for up to 16 graduate credits a semester.

Please understand that some of SCSU’s undergraduate majors and graduate programs must restrict coursework to admitted students only. Admitted students also have priority registration dates. Special students do not need registration access codes but are subject to the same tuition and fees as degree seeking students.
