Brandeis University accepts as visiting students for the fall and spring semesters a small number of individuals who are not candidates for a degree at Brandeis and who wish to enroll full-time for one or two semesters. To be eligible, a student must be currently enrolled in full-time undergraduate study and have completed at least one year of full-time coursework. Visiting students at Brandeis must carry at least 12 credit hours of courses each semester with a minimum GPA of 2.0. Students whose academic performance does not meet Brandeis standards may be denied permission to register for a second semester.

Neither residence nor financial aid is available to visiting students, and they may not take precedence over a degree candidate in any limited-enrollment course.

Persons interested in visiting-student status should apply by April 1 for the fall semester and by Nov. 1 for the spring semester. You may apply online by choosing the "visiting student" option.

Special-student status for non-degree students who wish to enroll in 1-2 courses per semester is subject to approval on an individual and semester basis by the Rabb School of Continuing Studies. Find more information about special-student status and how to apply on the Brandeis Summer School website.
