Only looking to earn 18 hours of graduate Spanish courses?

Not sure about pursuing the full Master's in Spanish? No problem. You can pursue 18 hours as a "nondegree" student without having to pursue a full graduate degree.

NONDEGREE PRINTABLE APPLICATION CHECKLIST - Providing you step-by-step instructions on the application process.

Two points to keep in mind about "nondegree" status:

  • Nondegree students are not eligible for financial aid
  • International students may not be eligible for nondegree status

If you change your mind later and would like to pursue the full Master's in Spanish, only four courses (12 credit hours) of your "nondegree" coursework can be transferred into the program later. Be sure to apply for the  Master's in Spanish before you complete your fourth course (12th credit hour) as a "nondegree" student.

cost

Check out our tuition estimator.

The average graduate student pursues 6sch (approximately two courses) each semester. Students can pursue one course or even three courses a semester, but students interested in more than three courses a semester should consult with their academic advisor beforehand.

The estimate may not include some fees, such as a $10 one-time Facility Fee (a state tax) and the Distance Education Fee for online courses. The Distance Education Fee is a $50 per credit hour. If a course is 3 hours, as most are, this will add $150 to your cost per online class.
