Special students can enrol in undergraduate courses for credit without pursuing a degree, diploma or certificate. This opportunity is generally for courses at the undergraduate level, however a number of graduate courses are available for qualified students.
Audit a course
Sitting in on a course is one of the best ways to satisfy a curiosity or scope a potential program of future study.
