Non-Degree Seeking Students

Non-degree status enables students who may need to satisfy prerequisites for admission or who have no immediate degree objective to enroll in courses for which they are qualified without seeking admission to a degree program. Non-degree students may also be visiting students (college students who wish to enroll at Webster and transfer coursework to their home institution) or have dual enrollment status (high school student wishing to enroll in a college level course at Webster).
