Explore Fels courses without committing to a full degree

The Fels Non-Degree program is designed to give individuals the opportunity to enroll in Fels elective courses without committing to a full degree program. Elective courses apply the signature Fels approach of context, analysis, and practice to specific topic and skill areas, including negotiations, public communications, nonprofit administration, public finance, data science, and other areas. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and students may begin in the fall or spring semesters.

Students who are later admitted to a Fels degree program may transfer up to two courses taken as a Non-Degree student to their degree program, subject to course eligibility. Admission to the Non-Degree program does not guarantee admission to a degree program. For more information, contact
