Non-Matriculated Students

Information for Non-Matriculated and Graduate Non-Matriculated Students

This information is for people who are not UW students, and who want to take one or more Statistics courses. There are two options available depending on your educational goals:

  • Non-Matriculated ("NM") student status should be obtained by people who want to take courses for personal or professional enrichment.
  • Graduate Non-Matriculated ("GNM") student status should be obtained by people who intend to apply to our graduate program at a later date and who wish to apply up to 12 credits of coursework to a possible future degree.

Students in either category who are faculty or staff members at the University of Washington may use their tuition exemption benefit. Information on this benefit may be found at the Human Resources Tuition Exemption benefit page.
