Master of Public Health – Non-Degree Seeking

Applicants who seek to take limited coursework, no more than 12 credit hours, may apply to join the UNT Health Science Center campus as a non-degree seeking student.  In this classification, students can take individual courses for personal growth or for potential transfer credit work. Application of courses to future coursework is dependent on performance, program fit and at the discretion of the degree awarding institution.

Non-degree seeking applicants should be aware of the following:

The student in this status is required to receive credit in all graduate courses taken, and must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.

A student who is admitted to non-degree status has no assurance that work completed under this status will be applicable toward degree requirements should he or she subsequently be admitted to a degree program at the health science center. A maximum of 12 semester hours may be taken.

Completion of departmental graduate courses by non-degree students does not obligate the School of Public Health to grant admission to a degree program at a later date, unless all general and specific requirements for admission to that program have been met.

International applicants requiring or holding F-1 visa status are not eligible for non-degree admission.
