Graduate Non-Matriculated Status

Graduate Non-Matriculated Students (GNM)

Under certain conditions, we may offer enrollment in the Real Estate graduate courses to Graduate Non-Matriculated students (GNM). The purpose of GNM enrollment is to allow qualified students to earn limited graduate credit in a particular area of need. Applicants who meet graduate admissions standards may be enrolled as GNM students and may apply up to a maximum of 12 credits earned while so enrolled toward graduate degree requirements if later accepted into the Master in Science and Real Estate (MSRE) degree program. Individuals interested in applying credits earned while enrolled as a GNM student in the MSRE or another graduate program must contact the respective program(s) to find out if and how those credits may be transferrable.
