After I graduate (with a Bachelors and Masters Degree), I need to re-take a few courses and take a few new ones to prepare for my next applications. But, how does one go to a 4 year college as non-degree seeking? Is the admissions process the same as undergrad? Do I have to apply or do I just contact the university? How can I know that the university is offering the classes I need? #college #graduate-school #college-admissions #veterinary #college-applications #college-advice #non-degree

Hello,

Depending on the level of the courses you need you might want to consider taking them from a community college. I was missing one required prerequisite course when I was applying to graduate school and I took it at my local community college. There wasn't much of an application process; rather just giving them my information, sending a transcript, and then the payment for the course. The entire process took approximately two weeks. Just make sure the school is accredited and that the course covers the type of information/material you will need. Good Luck!

If you're already attending a college for a Bachelor's Degree, I would suggest talking to your counselor. If you've already been accepted, you shouldn't have to re-apply. I know many students getting their Bachelor's that have taken a class or two that don't apply towards their degree. As far as whether or not they offer the classes you need, you should be able to search their available class list, just like you would when you're looking for classes to enroll in for your current degree. But instead of waiting until after you have your degree, I would suggest trying to get those classes done while you're getting your Bachelor's degree during your winter break (mini-mesters) or the summer semester. That way you can graduate with those classes behind you. Most colleges offer online classes so I would suggest looking at that as an option as well.

Courtney recommends the following next steps:

Congratulations on wanting to get more education but I feel strongly that you need to have a face to face conversation with a professional working in your intended field or your academic adviser
