Students with a completed Bachelor’s degree who have demonstrated academic competence and wish to take an upcoming graduate-level course in Communication Studies may apply as a non-degree seeking (NDS) student.

Please note undergraduate prerequisite course completion is typically necessary to succeed in graduate-level coursework. If you intend to enroll in coursework via NDS status for non-graduate study pursuits and personal interests, please specify what courses you would like to complete in the department in the personal statement.

Not all courses may be open to NDS students; please contact our graduate academic advisor before applying to receive a list of courses closed to NDS students.
