Not Yet Admitted? Taking Courses as a Non-Degree Seeking Student

If you are not a student at the University of Minnesota but would like to take a Public Affairs class, you may register as a non-degree-seeking student at the graduate level or the undergraduate level.

Should I register for graduate or undergraduate credit?

  • Take the course for graduate credit, if you 1) have a bachelor’s degree, and 2) want to apply the credits to a graduate program (now or in the future).
  • Take the course for undergraduate credit if 1) the course is to fulfill a prerequisite for a Humphrey graduate degree; 2) if you will apply the course to an undergraduate degree; or 3) if you are taking the course for your own development (i.e., not applying credits to a degree).

How will I know when I’m registered?

  • An initial confirmation of registration will be sent to the e-mail address you provide on the registration request form. All subsequent communication from the University regarding your registration and course participation will be sent to your U of M email address.  It is imperative that you initiate this account!  Instructions for initiating this account will be sent only once – with your initial registration confirmation. 

How do I pay for the course?

Can I register at the Twin Cities Campus if I am a student at Duluth, Crookston, or Morris?

  • An agreement exists among the campuses of the Twin Cities to allow students to attend another campus for one term during an academic year without losing their status at their home campus.  Students admitted to the University of Minnesota's Duluth, Crookston, or Morris campuses must both register as a non-degree-seeking student (per instructions above) and also submit the "Application for Attending Another University of Minnesota Campus as a Multi-Institutional Student."

 

Students who are not enrolled at the University of Minnesota can take Public Affairs courses.
