Applying as a Non-Degree Seeking Student

If you don’t intend to complete an NMHU degree and are taking coursework for personal enrichment or to transfer to another college, you’re considered a non-degree student. No transcripts or previous high school or college work is required for admission to non-degree status, however, a transcript may be required to determine fulfillment of prerequisite course work. If you’re not seeking a degree, there are a few differences, including the application process.

When you are a non-degree student, you are not eligible for financial aid, student loans, or scholarships.
