Non-Degree Students

Tennessee Wesleyan provides opportunities for many students not seeking a traditional college degree, high school students seeking to get a head start on earning college credits and temporary students. No matter the reason, we invite you to seek and explore the educational opportunities available to you at Tennessee Wesleyan.

A non-degree student is one not seeking a degree at Tennessee Wesleyan at the time of enrollment. Such students are subject to all rules, regulations, and fees governing degree-seeking students. There are three non-degree classifications.

SPECIAL STUDENT

A student who does not wish to be a candidate for a degree may be admitted as a special student upon presenting satisfactory evidence that he or she is prepared to study the subjects open to him or her.

TEMPORARY STUDENT

A student attending another college or university with permission from that institution to attend Tennessee Wesleyan University for ONE semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer).

DUAL ENROLLMENT HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

A rising senior still attending high school may take courses at Tennessee Wesleyan University for college credit. To be admitted, the student must have an outstanding high school record, must be recommended by his or her principal, and must have the written consent of a parent or guardian.

Non-degree students should contact the Office of Admissions at (423) 746-5286 or 1-844-PICK-TWU for more information about how to enroll.
