Academic Year Admission for Non-degree US Students

The Office of Summer and Continuing Studies allows students and adult learners to explore academic interests on a part-time basis.  Home to innovative, non-credit workshops and on-line activity designed for those pursuing new post degree skills, niche programs, institutes and workshops, Summer and Continuing Studies is Brandeis' portal for non-traditional students.

Financial aid is not available for non-degree students.

If you are not currently enrolled as a student at another college or university, you may be eligible to enroll in 1-2 courses per semester in the Fall or Spring Terms through our office. Admission is subject to approval on an individual and semester basis by the Rabb School of Continuing Studies. Students will have special-student status as a non-degree student.

If you are currently enrolled as a student at another college or university and would like to be a visiting student please visit the Office of Admissions.

Current high school students who wish to take a course during the Fall or Spring Term should contact the Office of High School Programs.
