Taking courses at Morris for those not seeking a degree
The University of Minnesota, Morris offers opportunities* to “nondegree-seeking students” who wish to prepare for college, explore an area of study, or pursue a personal interest. Because they are not pursuing a Morris degree, nondegree-seeking students are not required to be officially admitted to Morris. Courses completed and corresponding grades are posted to an official University of Minnesota, Morris transcript. Should a nondegree-seeking student decide to pursue a degree in the future, credits earned may count towards a degree program.
