START APPLICATION

 

You can register for Cal U undergraduate courses as a non-degree student for personal enrichment or professional development, even if you do not plan to pursue a degree.

  • You may complete up to 30 credits as a non-degree-seeking student.
  • After reaching 30 credits, you must either declare a major or indicate in writing that you do not plan to pursue a Cal U degree.
  • As a non-matriculating/non-degree student, you are not eligible for financial aid.

If you are still exploring your interests, taking courses as a non-degree student without declaring a major is a good way to learn more. Students who begin as non-degree students and later decide to complete a degree must submit all required admissions information (and be in good academic standing) at the time of application.

Cal U also offers affordable non-credit courses for professional development or personal enrichment.

  • Many courses offer continuing education units (CEUs) required for renewal of professional licensures and career development.
  • Choose from online, traditional and hybrid classes for non-credit courses.

How to Apply

To apply for admission for personal and professional development as a non-degree-seeking student, provide the following:

  • Application for admission (either hard copy or electronic application).
  • A nonrefundable $35 application fee, payable to California University of Pennsylvania.
  • An official high school transcript and, if applicable, GED certificate and scores. This requirement is waived for students who hold associate or higher degrees.
  • Official copy of your SAT or ACT scores (This requirement is waived for students that completed 3 college credits or have been out of high school for two years).
  • Official college transcript indicating degree conferred. If no degree has been earned, submit your official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.
