Non-degree status

Non-degree status provides an option for students to take courses without being admitted to an OHSU School of Nursing graduate program. Not all courses are open to non-degree students. Once a student has been approved, and has met all the requirements for becoming a non-degree student, this status remains effective for up to four continuous terms and/or within the same academic year. However, faculty permission must be granted for every course the student takes.

Non-degree students are limited to taking a maximum of 6 credits per term. No more than 9 credits of non-degree coursework can be transferred into a School of Nursing graduate program. Taking courses as a non-degree student is not considered in the admission decisions to an OHSU academic program.  Non-degree students may not take clinical courses.

Please send inquiries about graduate program information to For specific details on being a non-degree student, contact Carolyn Kimpton, Program Technician, at 503 494-2351 or

Please see the academic calendar for registration and starting dates for each term.

You must be registered for courses at least six weeks before the start of each term. Non-degree students cannot register for courses after the term begins. Non-degree students must be compliant (more information regarding compliance requirements is listed below, in step 3.) by the beginning of the term.

Non-degree students must contact the faculty teaching the course (or program director) to request permission to enroll. To obtain an e-mail from a faculty member, please go to the faculty listings page. Admitted students have priority for enrolling in all graduate courses. Faculty may:

  • Permit you to register for the course;
  • Decline your request
  • Keep a waiting list and notify you later if permission to take the course is granted.

If you receive an email from a faculty member permitting you to register for a course, you must submit a copy of that email with your course registration materials to the Registrar.
