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:
- Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
- Great Plains IDEA (GPIDEA)
- Intensive English Orientation Program (IEOP)
- National Student Exchange
Note: Nondegree students generally don't quality for financial aid.
