Geology Graduate Program


If you completed a bachelor’s degree with a demonstrated academic competence in geology or a related discipline and wish to take an upcoming graduate-level course in the Department of Geology ad hoc, you may apply as a non-degree seeking (NDS) student. Please note undergraduate prerequisite course completion is typically necessary to succeed in graduate-level coursework. Not all courses in our department are open to NDS students; please contact our graduate academic advisor before applying to inquire about your eligibility to enroll in specific courses.


Please contact the Graduate Academic Advisor, Cicily Corder, with any questions.
