How to get started for…

Non–degree-seeking students

Non–degree-seeking students typically enroll in courses for personal enrichment or professional development, but it is also a way to experience Metropolitan State without fully transferring. This option is for students who are not seeking a degree or who have missed the published application deadline. Applications are accepted through the first week of each semester. 

How to apply as a non–degree-seeking student

  1. Apply for undergraduate admission online. You can check the status of your application through eServices to ensure that we have received your application and transcripts.
  2. Register for classes during open registration.
  3. Arrange for payment. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. Tuition payment must be arranged the same day as registration. 
  4. Once you've been accepted, learn about student services. After you receive your admission email (typically within 2–3 business days of application), Gateway Student Services is your first stop for everything from registration to payment.
