Graduate Liberal Studies offers two forms of admission: open enrollment to non-degree status and application for admission to the MALS or MPhil degree program. For information about applying for admission to the degree program, click Degree Admission. More information about registering as a non-degree student can be found on our registration page.
Through open enrollment to non-degree status, any student who has already completed a bachelor's degree is welcome to register for GLS courses. Credit earned through non-degree study may be applied to graduation requirements for both the MALS and MPhil degrees. Many students begin their studies through open enrollment and apply for the degree later on. Non-degree students are not eligible for certain forms of scholarship and financial aid. Learn more about financing your education as a non-degree student on our Tuition and Aid page.
International Students: All application materials for international students must be received by the GLS office no later than 8 weeks before the first day of class.
