The undergraduate non-degree application becomes available once the course schedule for the semester becomes accessible online. The application will remain active until the end of the Add/Drop period each semester. After the Add/Drop period, students will not be permitted to apply for that particular semester. All non-degree high school and GED graduate applicants become inactive at the end of each Spring semester. If the student is interested in continuing at West Chester University, we would require another non-degree application to be completed.
We recommend that the non-degree application gets completed prior to the start of open registration for the semester. This will allow time for admission and prerequisite requirements to be assessed, as well as communicate with Department Chairs, if deemed necessary. Although applicants will not be permitted to register until open registration, it will ensure that the student is prepared, increasing the likelihood of obtaining a seat in the class.
Once it is determined that an applicant meets the minimum admission and prerequisite requirements, they will be granted permission to register for courses beginning the first day of open registration. Please consult the Academic Calendar for our open registration dates.
If you are a student who qualifies for accommodations, please see the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) websitefor information on the level of accommodation provided for college courses. Pleasecontact the OSSD
to submit appropriate disability documentation.
Once the student activates their myWCU account, they will be able to enroll in courses, as long as they meet the prerequisite requirements and have been granted permission to enroll. If the student receives a prerequisite error message while completing their class registration, they cane-mail Undergraduate Non-Degree
with the EXACT class information and request to be given permission to enroll. In that request, the student should provide proof of successful completion of the prerequisite if it has not been previously submitted.
If the student does not qualify for the non-degree program or we do not receive all information requested, the non-degree application will not be processed.
