- special students
Applicants who do not wish to work for a college degree may be considered for admission to Edinboro University if they present evidence of ability to do college level work. Such non-degree seeking students are considered "Special Students" and are permitted to remain in attendance for no longer than the equivalent of one academic year or 32 semester hours of credit. If, at that point, a Special Student wishes to pursue further studies for a degree, the student must meet all entrance requirements outlined in the University catalog before being considered for degree-seeking status. Students who are admitted as special students are not eligible for federal and state aid programs.
- Applicants who are not high school graduates but demonstrate the ability and initiative to engage in college-level course work may be admitted as Special Students. Such students may take courses, receive grades and earn credits like other students, and their grades and credits become part of their permanent academic record at Edinboro University. However, these credits will not be accepted toward a degree at Edinboro until the student has received a high school diploma or demonstrated equivalency.
- Special Students may have definite programs of study which they would like to follow and can only enroll in courses where required prerequisites are met. Special Students will be given second priority to degree candidates for available class seats.
- Special Students are subject to the same rules and regulations of the University as other students. A grade of "C" or above in each course is expected.
