Visiting student status in the College of Human Ecology

Students may apply as visiting students if they are enrolled at another institution and are interested in particular programs in the College, or have a bachelor’s degree and are preparing for graduate study or a career in a Human Ecology related field, or have interrupted their education and are considering completing a degree program. Those accepted as non-degree visiting students may enroll for a maximum of two semesters. Visiting students must apply for transfer admission during the second semester of attendance or terminate studies in the college at the end of the second semester.

Visiting students must take a minimum of 12 credits each semester and take one-half or more of their work in the College of Human Ecology. Courses taken while a visiting student may be counted toward the requirements of a bachelor’s degree. Those interested in becoming a visiting student should contact the College of Human Ecology Office of Admissions (607-255-5471) to schedule an appointment to discuss advising and the application process.
