The Non-Degree Option permits learners to access University courses for motivations other than degree or certificate seeking purposes. Reasons may include employer requirements; preparation for entrance into advanced studies (either at TWU or elsewhere); satisfying prerequisites in either employment, or professional circles; personal enrichment; professional development or professional licensing purposes; or picking up courses not currently available at their home institution. The Non-Degree Option is a great choice for those seeking to take up to 27 credits without seeking a degree. Upon taking 27 credits (usually 9 courses), you are invited to apply as a degree-seeking student.

We offer a simplified application and registration process. Have a look at the courses options offered on campus, online or during our Summer Sessions.

See TWU’s course timetable.
