Credit Non-Degree Programs


The UIC School of Public Health offers interested persons the opportunity to register for public health courses in a Credit Non-Degree (CND) status. Thirteen semester hours and letter grades earned by CND students may be transferred toward a degree program upon the student's acceptance as a degree candidate and with the consent of the academic division to which the student has been admitted. CND students are accepted every semester, however, the number of CND seats available each term is limited. Students interested in applying as a non-degree student should select from among the CND options described below. If undecided, please select the Non-degree Public Health option.   

Students are strongly encouraged to apply early, as CND spaces fill-up quickly. Admission as a CND student does not guarantee admission to any of the degree granting programs of the School.
