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. Students interested in applying as a non-degree student should select from among the CND options described below. If undecided, please contact the Assistant Dean of Recruitment and Admissions, Brandon Sieglaff, at

  • Non-degree Public Health*

Admission as a CND student does not guarantee admission to any of the degree granting programs of the School.  Applicants must hold an undergraduate degree.
