Graduate Non-Degree Study Guidelines

Students who wish to study in non-degree status may only request courses that do not require instructor permission nor are designated for a particular degree program only.

Course offerings for the semester are published on the American University (AU) AU Registrar website, Schedule of Classes.

Kogod Graduate courses are those with subject codes with 500 or above level numbers:

ACCT- Accounting  ITEC- Information Technology
FIN- Finance  KSB or MGMT- Management
IBUS- International Business  MKTG- Marketing

Please note the course code, section number, course title and any prerequisites that are specified in the listing and record this on the application.


Should a non-degree study applicant wish to take a course that requires a prerequisite course(s), the applicant needs to provide transcript documentation that an equivalent graduate level course was fulfilled satisfactorily at another accredited academic institution.

Transcripts should be faxed to 202.885.1078 Attn: KSB Graduate Advising. Applicants will be notified by Graduate Advising if the prerequisite fulfillment has been approved by the KSB academic department.
