Graduate Non-Degree Application

Bridgewater State University welcomes students who hold a bachelor's degree to take graduate courses as a non-degree student!

Students who plan to matriculate into a graduate program at Bridgewater will only be allowed to count six credits taken as a non-degree student (for graduate programs less than 40 credits) or nine credits (for graduate programs more than 40 credits) towards that program. Courses taken as a non-degree student are not eligible for financial aid.
