Non-Degree Seeking Admissions

Students who do not plan to earn a degree from Trevecca may apply for admission through any of the following programs and may take one or more courses at Trevecca. A maximum of 16 semester hours may be earned in this status. Non-degree seeking status is not automatic and is usually granted for one term only except in special circumstances. Some statuses described below may be approved for exception on the limit of enrollment and of maximum hours earned upon written appeal to the Admissions Committee. Non-degree seeking students are prohibited by federal regulations from receiving federal financial assistance. The application fee for any non-degree seeking program is $25.00 (waived for electronic application).

Audit Admission

Individuals wishing to attend class presentations as a non-participant in a non-credit, non-degree seeking status may apply to audit a course. Audit is non-credit in all cases and flat-rate fees apply. Since all classes are not open for audit, students must have prior approval of the instructor and University registrar. Students taking courses for credit have priority over audit students for class entry. Therefore, audit students may register on a space-available basis only. Students may not audit private music lessons, trips, or courses in special degree programs.

Dual Enrollment Admission

High school students, upon recommendation of the high school principal or counselor, may be granted dual enrollment admission during the junior or senior year in high school. Before dual admission is granted, the applicant must take the ACT or SAT and have the official qualifying scores sent to Trevecca’s Office of Admissions. An official partial high school transcript with a qualifying grade point average must also be submitted. Such students may take University classes while completing their high school diploma.

Post-Graduate Admission

Non-Degree Post-Graduate status is for students who hold an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited college or university and would like to take additional undergraduate courses at Trevecca. In addition to the application and fee, a student must submit an official copy of the college transcript with degree and graduation date posted.

Transient Admission

Admission as a transient student is granted on the basis of a completed application, application fee (waived for electronic application) and an official “letter of good standing” from the institution currently being attended. The letter must be mailed directly to Trevecca's Office of Admissions from the academic dean or registrar of the student's present institution.

A student coming directly from high school to summer school at Trevecca needs to supply a high school transcript, test scores, application, fee and letter of acceptance from the university they will attend during the fall semester.

Regular Non-Degree Admission

Students who do not wish to earn a degree, but otherwise would normally fall into the freshman or transfer admission category, may apply as a non-degree seeking student. All other admission requirements are the same as those for degree-seeking students.

Senior Citizen Audit Admission

Senior citizens, 60 years of age or older, may audit up to 3 hours per semester tuition-free on a space available basis with approval of instructor and University registrar. This does not apply to trips, special degree programs, or course fees. Proof of age is required.
