Graduate Non-matriculated (GNM) and Non-matriculated (NM) Status
Both Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) and Non-matriculated (NM) status allow students to enroll in graduate courses without first being admitted to a degree program.In the Department of Health Services:
- Programs grant GNM status and allow GNM/NM course registration on a case-by-case basis. Not all courses are eligible.
- Acceptance as a GNM/NM student does not guarantee priority for later acceptance into a degree program.
- CPMM and CHL program students should contact the MHA program office directly for information about registration.
(for GNM/NM students not in CPMM or CHL)
Both forms below must be completed. GNM students must apply for GNM status before registering.
Differences Between GNM and NM:
- Credits earned as GNM may be transferable if a student is later admitted into a graduate degree program.
- Credits earned as NM are generally not transferable to a graduate degree program.
- GNM application requires that official transcripts be submitted for previous degrees.
- NM requires no formal application. Just follow the process for registering for courses.
