Non-Degree Graduate Application Process

Step 1: Apply for Non-Degree Graduate Status

Applications may take up to a week to process and must be received at least 5 working days before the first day of the semester. 

  • A nonrefundable $75 processing fee
  • Copy of your TOEFL* (if English is not your native language) with the required minimum score of 550
  • 1-20s are not issued for Non-Degree Seeking Students

*Email all supporting documents to umnondegree@miami.edu

Step 2: Choose your class and obtain permission from the professor to enroll

  • Select courses using the academic bulletin or Search for Classes
  • Contact the professor of the course and ask for approval to enroll
    • Approval is at the discretion of the professor or program director (School of Business Administration DOES NOT participate in the Non-Degree Graduate Program)
    • Students are limited to two lifetime classes in Non-Degree Graduate Status
    • If approval is given, the professor must send an email with your name and the course information to umnondegree@miami.edu confirming their approval of enrollment to the specific class (the approval must be received directly from the instructor)
    • It is recommended that you have the professor copy you on the email so you can confirm that is has been sent

Step 3: Submit a Class Request Form

Once the approval email has been received, submit the Course Request Form to umnondegree@miami.edu.
  • When filling out Course Request Form make sure to include:
    • Name
    • ID – Student number
    • Semester
    • Name of class, number of class, and section number
    • Contact number and e-mail
    • Signature

Step 4: Confirm your schedule and pay on CaneLink

  • Confirm your registration is correct in CaneLink 
  • Make Payment - students are responsible for tuition and fees upon registration 
Important: Once you are registered for the semester

Once you have registered for a semester all changes to your schedule (adds and drops*) must be done by completing a Drop/Add form. Not attending or not paying does not drop you from a class.

*Students wishing to drop all courses they are currently enrolled in must follow the University of Miami Withdrawal Process.
