Graduate Non-Matriculated Status
There are a couple of different ways to take courses at the University of Washington without enrolling in a degree-seeking program if you have a Bachelorís degree. The first is through UW Admissions as a post-baccalaureate or non-matriculated student. The second is through Graduate Admissions as a graduate non-matriculated (GNM) student.
To learn more about GNM status, please see the Graduate School website.
Not all graduate programs admit students into Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) status. Occasionally the anthropology faculty will consider an application for GNM status. Such applications are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
If you wish to be considered for GNM status, you will need to take the following applications steps.
Complete a Graduate Admissions GNM application and submit through the followng web-site: https://www.grad.washington.edu/applForAdmiss/
As part of this application you will be asked to submit the following:
- Statement of Purpose (one to two pages explaining how GNM status is helpful to you and the courses you intend to pursue)
- Upload unofficial transcripts
- Pay a fee
If you have any quesitons, please contact the Graduate Program Assistant at 206-685-1562, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The Graduate Program Coordinator and other appropriate members of the faculty will review your file and consider you for admission to GNM status. You will be notified via e-mail regarding the outcome of your application.
The deadline to apply for GNM status by quarter are as follows:
