Registering as a Non-admitted Student

You may take 8 undergraduate credits per quarter (fall, winter or spring) without being admitted to the college.

In summer, you may take up to 20 undergraduate credits as a non-admitted (special) student.

How to Register

To register, complete the Special Student Registration Form (PDF) and submit it to Registration and Records by mail, fax, email or in person.

Using a state/college employee or 60+ waiver? You’ll register after classes start, which requires faculty signature. You can only register if there is space available as determined by Registration and Records. Learn more about these waiver programs.

Otherwise, you'll begin registering one week after traditional admitted students, follow all the same processes and pay the same amount of tuition and fees.

If there are multiple Course Registration Numbers (CRN), you generally need to use the freshman CRN.

All of the credits you earn can count toward an Evergreen bachelor's or master's degree. But remember you will need to apply for formal admission before you can graduate and be given a degree.

Graduate Programs

  • Master of Environmental Studies: Non-admitted students may take four elective credits per quarter with permission from faculty. Register in person during the first week of the quarter.
  • Master of Public Administration: Non-admitted students may take a limited number of credits with permission. See MPA for more information.
  • Master in Teaching: You must be admitted to the program to take offerings.
