Non-Degree Enrollment at the University of Washington (Seattle) allows anyone to register for a UW course and earn course credits without formal admission to the UW. However, since preference is given to matriculated students (students formally admitted to the university), Non-Degree Enrollment is on a standby, space-available basis and at the discretion of the specific department.

There are three types of non-degree enrollment available at the University of Washington:

  1. Visiting Graduate Student – offered in the SPHSC Department
  2. Non-Matriculated (NM) – offered in the SPHSC Department
  3. Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) – not available in the SPHSC Department

Please note that while some departments on campus allow for Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) course registration, the Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences does not grant this status for any of its 4 graduate programs. We only offer Visiting Graduate Student enrollment and Non-Matriculated enrollment.
