Non-Degree Option



If you are unsure about enrolling in a graduate program, or just want to advance your educational experience, non-degree study at Simmons is the best option for you. As a non-degree student, you may enroll in up to two graduate-level courses (up to eight credits) before formally applying to a degree program. Woman in Simmons College library

Individuals considering this option are encouraged to contact the program director for advice on a course of study. This is particularly important if you are planning on applying to a degree program, so that you can verify that the courses you choose will apply towards a degree. Be aware that successful completion of these courses does not guarantee admission into the program.

Registration and Further Details

The registration packets contain all the materials that you will need to enroll and should answer all your questions about registration, tuition, billing, and more. Please be aware that non-degree students are not eligible for Simmons College or federal financial aid.
