Non-degree study allows individuals who have not been formally accepted into a degree-seeking program at UConn to take graduate-level credit courses with the Department of Public Policy (DPP).
A maximum of 6 credits, with an earned grade of a B- or better, can be transferred into a degree program. In order for the course to count as a transfer credit, it must have been taken within six years.
All non-degree courses in the department cost $825 per credit, or $2,475 for a 3-credit course.
If you have a Bachelor’s degree or higher and wish to register for a course as a non-degree with the Department of Public Policy, please follow the steps below:
