Non-Degree Students

MIAD accepts students who wish to take courses for credit without entering the degree programs. To be considered for admission as a non-degree seeking student you must submit an online application, and complete a personal interview with an admissions counselor.

If you are enrolling in six or fewer Foundations credits per semester, a portfolio review is not required. If you are enrolling in an upper level course, you will need to meet any pre-requisites to this course. Submission of college level transcripts and/or a portfolio will provide the necessary evidence of proficiency.

If you decide at some future date to enter the degree program, you must re-apply through the Office of Admissions as a degree candidate. The credits you have successfully completed as a non-degree student will be applied toward your degree program requirements.
