Non-degree programs allow you to earn academic credit for the undergraduate courses you complete, without enrolling as a degree-seeking student.
A Cal U non-degree program may be ideal for:
- A student who needs a particular college course to enhance his/her transcript, perhaps as a prerequisite for graduate school, or to explore a University program.
- A professional who needs a college course for licensure/certification or who wishes to add a course to his/her resume.
- A visiting undergraduate student.
- A high school student looking to try out a college course or jump-start his/her college education.
- A retiree who wishes to take tuition-free classes.
- A worker seeking retraining.
For-credit undergraduate courses allow students to explore a University program, enhance a transcript, meet professional licensure/certification requirements or add to a resume.
Visiting students may study at Cal U for one term (Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring) then transfer credits back to their home college or university.
High school students pay a reduced cost, earn college credit and get a head start on their postsecondary education.
Pennsylvania residents age 60 and older may take college courses tuition-free. Non-degree, bachelor’s and master’s degree options are available.
