Non-Degree

Prospective students interested in our online MS in gerontology or aging and geriatric practice certificate programs have the opportunity to enroll in courses as a non-degree seeking student. Non-degree seeking students can enroll in up to 6 credit hours (two courses) per semester. This is an excellent opportunity to explore a particular area of interest while transitioning into an online learning environment.

As a non-degree seeking student, you’ll have the opportunity to enroll in the same courses as our master’s degree and graduate certificate students without the need to commit to a graduate program. No clinical experience is required to apply and there is no application fee. Our graduate courses are:

  • Entirely online and asynchronous.
  • Led by experts in the field of aging.
  • Updated regularly in response to trends and research findings.
  • Competitively priced, regardless of a student’s location.

As a non-degree seeking student, you’ll be able to transfer credits toward the Master of Science in Medical Sciences with a concentration in Gerontology or the Graduate Certificate in Aging and Geriatric Practice, as long as you are accepted and earn a “B” or higher.
