  • There are two categories of undergraduate nondegree enrollment:
    1. Regular
      • There are no special restrictions to the nondegree regular status; advising is not required. All nondegree students register on a space available basis.
    2. Conditional
      • Students previously dropped from degree status because of poor scholarship at Penn State or any other college or university may enroll only in a nondegree conditional status. Restrictions are applied to students registering in a nondegree conditional status:
        • Limited to 12 credits per semester.
        • Limited to 40 credits overall while in this status.
        • Must obtain academic advice before registering.
