I Have Already Earned a Four-Year Degree
A student who has earned a four-year degree in higher education and who wishes to enroll in undergraduate courses only (0-4999 level courses), without pursuing another degree, may enroll as a Guest Degree Holder. Such a student is not limited to the number of courses which may be taken at BGSU. Guest Degree Holders are not eligible for financial aid.
The only admission requirement for a guest degree holder is a completed undergraduate guest application, as well as, official confirmation from the appropriate institution of the highest degree received. Acceptable degree confirmation can be an unofficial photocopy of the student's transcript or a diploma. Please mail or fax this documentation along with your application. Mailing address and fax number are on the top of the application. Students who received their degree from BGSU do not need to submit degree verification.
When submitting an undergraduate guest application, please allow 4 business days for processing. Confirmation will be sent to your email address (if provided) or home address once the application has been processed. Applicants who have indicated a felony conviction will be notified within 1 business day of any additional information that may be required.
Students not in continuous attendance must resubmit an undergraduate guest application in order to have access to the registration system. Information regarding registration for succeeding terms may be found here: http://www.bgsu.edu/offices/registrar/index.html.
Individuals wishing to take course work for educator licensure (teaching, administrative, or pupil services) must also complete the Application to Take Educator Licensure Coursework—For Guest Students Only form.
