A person admitted as a non-degree seeking student who wants to take undergraduate courses must
- be a high school graduate or have completed the GED;
- understand that acceptance in this category does not constitute acceptance to a degree-granting program;
- have sufficient educational background to qualify for the course(s) in which enrollment is sought;
- accept personal responsibility for the applicability of credits earned while registered in this category; and
- be aware that non-degree seeking students are not eligible for federal or state financial aid.
Non-degree seeking students may register for no more than 7 credits each semester and may complete a maximum of 32 semester credits. Note on credit policy at the University of Idaho: Graduate students can take up to 12 credits without submitting a degree-seeking application. Undergraduate students can take 32 credits as non-degree seeking before they stop applying towards a bachelor's degree.
Once you are in the system, you will register online via VandalWeb and follow these steps:
Registration for fall semester starts in early April and remains open until classes begin in August. Registration for spring semester starts in early November and remains open until classes begin in January. Summer semester registration starts in late March or early April and remains open until classes begin.
We highly recommend registering as early as possible because classes can fill quickly.
