Graduate non-degree students are those whose interest in advanced study is not related to a degree program or whose previous background or work does not immediately qualify them for admission to the Graduate School. A Bachelor’s degree is required in order to establish graduate non-degree status.
Work taken as a non-degree student will be applied to a degree only if it fits into an approved program of study and is completed within the appropriate time limit. Up to twelve hours of degree credit (inclusive of transfer credit) may be granted with approval of the student’s advisory committee for work done at The University of Maine prior to admission if students were post-baccalaureate at the time of registration.
