Non-Matriculated Students

If you would like to try out our program without completing the full application process, you may apply as a "non-matriculated student."  Under this status, you may take any two of our classes.  If you perform well in them, and you apply to and are accepted into the M.A. program, the credits from these courses can be transferred toward the degree.  Non-matriculated students cannot be considered for financial aid.  If you wish to apply to be a non-matriculated student, please notify the Graduate Director, Dr. Markus Kreuzer, at  Once you have received a response to your e-mail, you can get to the Non-Matriculated Application and then apply by simply clicking here.
