Non-Degree Options

Non-Degree Options

Students interested in learning new skills or improving their domain knowledge have three non-degree seeking options at CDM.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

If you wish to take a maximum of two courses to update your knowledge of a particular subject for professional or personal development, you must apply for admission as a non-degree seeking student. Students who wish to take more than two courses should consider enrolling in a degree program. The two courses taken as a non-degree student can be applied towards a degree program, subject to approval by an advisor.

The two courses can be taken at the undergraduate or graduate level. Applying for the Non-Degree admission process at the graduate level is the same as the traditional master's degree admission process. Applications for non-degree status at the undergraduate level is managed by the university’s undergraduate admissions office.

Certificates

CDM offers certificate programs to provide opportunities for degree holders to sharpen their skills. Applicants must submit transcripts from their master's degree and a resume for consideration. Choose non-degree seeking programs on the DePaul Application.

Institute for Professional Development Programs

Students who wish to enhance specific technology skill development might also wish to consider CDM's Institute for Professional Development. The Institute for Professional Development offers a variety of certificate programs varying in length from two to twelve weeks.
