Non-Degree Seeking Admission

Non-Degree Seeking Admission

Students who do not plan to earn a degree, but are seeking the opportunity to earn some college credit from UTSA must apply as either a special undergraduate or transient applicant. Non-degree seeking applicants must adhere to the same application deadline requirements as degree-seeking transfer students.

Non-degree seeking students are:

  • Transfer students who enroll in courses only at the undergraduate level without pursuing a degree at UTSA.
  • Planning to enroll only for one semester before returning to another institution (transient).

Non-Degree Requirements

  • Must have at least a C average (2.25 CGPA on a 4.0 scale) on the last 30 undergraduate hours attempted.
  • Must be eligible to return to the most recent institution.

Non-Degree Admission Process

  1. Apply online at
    • Select The University of Texas at San Antonio.
    • For Semester of Entry, select the semester you plan to begin at UTSA. (Applications are term-specific. Be sure to select the correct term that corresponds with when you plan to begin at UTSA.)
    • For First Choice School, select Non-Degree. Do NOT select a second choice school, just continue.
    • For First Choice Major, select Transient-Non-Degree/Non Major. Do NOT select a second choice major, just continue.
    • You can then proceed to complete the remainder of the application.
  2. Pay a non-refundable $60 application fee (fee waivers are not accepted for non-degree seekers).
  3. Submit official college transcript from which the last 30 undergraduate hours were attempted. (UTSA accepts transcripts through Electronic Parchment, E-Script PDF and Naviance.)
  4. Submit official high school transcript if you have earned fewer than 30 semester credit hours.

Please Note: the UTSA Undergraduate Admissions Office does not accept faxed documents.
