Special Status (Non-Degree Seeking)
Students who do not wish to seek a degree but who would like to enroll for one or more courses should submit the Special Student Application for Admission. Part-time, non-degree seeking students, designated as Special students, may register for regular courses through the Registrar’s Office. Registration is subject to the following restrictions:
- All prospective Special students must confirm their completion of high school or the GED and provide all previous college transcripts, or they must be approved by the vice president for academic affairs.
- An individual denied admission to Huntingdon College as a degree-seeking student is not eligible to register as a Special student.
- Special students may not take classes numbered 300 or above without the approval of the applicable dean and the vice president for academic affairs.
- After completing four courses as a Special student, the student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher to continue as a Special student.
- Exemptions from any of the above restrictions may be granted only by the vice president for academic affairs.
- All payment arrangements for Special students must be made in accordance with the policies set forth for regular students as defined in the Huntingdon College Catalog.
- All Special students will be charged at the same rate per credit hour as regular students.
- Special students are not eligible to live in residence halls or to participate in intercollegiate athletics or fraternity or sorority membership.
- Special students are not eligible for any Huntingdon College scholarships or Title IV federal funds.
- Should the Special student subsequently meet regular eligibility admission requirements and choose to become a degree-seeking student, transcripts from previous colleges and universities attended will be evaluated.
- Any credits earned while designated a Special student are applicable toward the degree sought at Huntingdon College.
- Special students must adhere to the same institutional academic policies (except as noted above) as regular students.
