Office of Admissions
Non-Degree Seeking Students
Under certain circumstances, students may enroll at UNA as special students. These are not considered to be degree-seeking students. Admission as a special student requires approval by the Dean of Enrollment Management.
Special students must be at least 18 years of age and must hold a high school diploma or equivalency. Students not meeting this educational requirement may enroll only by obtaining special permission from the Dean of Enrollment Management.
Special students who have attended another college or university must have an official transcript from the last school attended sent to the Office of Admissions. Students who have attended another college or university and who have earned a bachelor’s degree must also have an official transcript verifying that degree sent to the Office of Admissions. Students seeking teacher certification, MBA prerequisites or nontraditional fifth-year prerequisites must also have official transcripts from all previously attended institutions sent to the Office of Admissions. Students who have not attended another college or university must have their high school send an official transcript (or their testing agency send an official copy of the GED test scores).
Special students cannot become candidates for a degree or be eligible for honors or offices unless and until they reapply and are admitted as regular degree seeking students. Up to 32 semester hours earned during special student status may be applied toward a degree program.
