Graduate Admissions


Students may take graduate courses at Towson University without pursuing a formal degree. A non-degree classification allows students to take courses while awaiting admission to a graduate degree program, or to complete classes for personal, professional or academic reasons.

Students who wish to move into a degree program can transfer up to 12 units (4 courses) of graduate work from non-degree status with approval of a program director. Some departments do not allow non-degree seeking students to take courses due to class size and class priority for degree-seeking students. Check with the program director for more information.

Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. Students must submit immunization paperwork to Dowell Health Center to be eligible for registration.

Admission Requirements

Non-degree students must submit the graduate application and application fee. Please note that Towson University policy requires Graduate non-degree seeking students to submit a transcript validating their highest degree earned before they are eligible to register for graduate classes
