Courses for non-majors

The School of Nursing offers opportunities for learning open to UW graduate students and non-degree seeking students.

Current UW graduate students

Non-nursing majors enrolling in some School of Nursing courses may need to obtain prior permission from the course instructor or fulfill specific course prerequisites. These requirements are generally noted in the UW Time Schedule.

Non-degree seeking students

Non-degree seeking students can apply for Non-Matriculated (NM) status and register for these courses with School of Nursing permission. Please note that there are different processes for applying for NM status, depending on whether or not you are planning to use a state employee tuition exemption.
