Non-Seeking Degree Students are individuals who wish to take college courses for their personal interest and enjoyment but do not intend to pursue a degree. These individuals will be listed as “special students” and will not be subject to the requirements for admission as degree-seeking students. Special students must, however, give evidence of preparation and ability to perform successfully in college-level courses. A student in this category may earn no more than 30 semester hours.
Special students wishing to change their status to degree-seeking may do so by meeting all College admission requirements. Upon changing their status to degree-seeking, students may apply credits earned as “special students” to the degree.
We encourage you to review the Net Price Calculator for an estimate of costs and average aid awarded. The Net Price Calculator is a broad estimator of cost and financial aid, and does not represent an individual offer of aid. More than half of all student at Morris receive some type of financial aid.
We encourage you to apply early as most funds are limited. You must apply for financial aid each year by completing the FAFSA available online at www.fafsa.gov.
