Non-Degree & High School

If you're thinking about taking college classes for personal enrichment, or if you're a high school student who would like to get a head start on your college career, attending Washburn as a non-degree seeking student could be just the thing for you.

You should apply as a non-degree seeking student if you are:

  • a high school student who would be taking classes while in high school
  • taking courses for personal enrichment and not toward a degree
  • attending another college or university and don’t plan to complete the degree at Washburn

Applying is as simple as submitting an undergraduate application.

Financial aid is only available to degree-seeking students.

There are many options for high school students seeking to earn college credit:

  • Concurrent Enrollment Partnership (CEP) Program – you’ll take courses at your high school for college credit.
  • Senior Academy – you’ll take classes on campus in the spring semester of your senior year of high school for college credit.
  • As a non-degree seeking student – as a high school student with a GPA of 3.0 or higher you may take online classes or classes that fit your schedule (not through the Concurrent Enrollment Partnership Program).
