Nondegree Admissions

Follow your heart, not the herd 

If you’re not looking for a degree but still want to challenge yourself and learn something new, our nondegree program is just the adventure you’re looking for.  

You are welcome to take classes on a part-time or full-time basis without working toward a degree at Iowa State. You can take classes alone or as part of one of these off-campus and distance learning opportunities:

Note: Nondegree students generally don't quality for financial aid.
