At The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, we welcome anyone seeking to further their education. And we understand that, for some, that process doesn’t involve working towards receiving a degree. That’s why we offer a variety of options and programs for non-degree seeking students to participate in the vibrant educational atmosphere and learning community that UVa-Wise offers.
Non-Degree Application Requirements and Admissions Process
To be eligible for admission to UVa-Wise as a non-degree seeking student, applicants must submit a completed general application for admission, with an indication of your non-degree seeking status. The Director of Enrollment Management in the Admissions Office will act on the non-degree seeking student application upon submission.
Non-Degree Enrollment Registration
Students who wish to take classes for self-improvement and education, but who are not seeking a degree, may enroll for a maximum of seven (7) hours per semester. Non-degree seeking students who already hold a bachelor’s degree or higher may take an unlimited number of hours per semester.
