What is a Lifelong Learner?
Student may request to enroll at CSU Global as Lifelong Learners (which is considered "Non-Degree seeking") to take courses for personal or professional enrichment rather than for degree-seeking purposes. As a Non-Degree seeking student, you are not required to submit official transcripts. Lifelong Learners who wish to enroll in graduate level courses must submit official transcripts documenting completion of a regionally accredited bachelor’s degree. Lifelong Learners are not eligible for financial aid and are subject to the same institutional requirements as degree seeking students.
Lifelong Learners may apply to become degree seeking if all admissions and degree requirements for their degree program of interest are met. No more than 24 undergraduate credits or 12 graduate credits earned in a non-degree seeking status may be applied towards graduation and degree requirements. All courses taken at CSU Global will calculate towards the cumulative GPA. Duplicative credit will not be accepted in transfer by CSU Global.
Lifelong Learner students will be asked to complete the Lifelong Learner Acknowledgement Form prior to starting classes.
