Non-Degree Seeking Students
The Perdue School serves non-degree-seeking students by allowing them to enroll directly in both lower- and upper-division courses. Students who do not meet specific course pre-requisites must obtain approval from the associate dean of the Perdue School of Business before enrolling.
The Perdue School welcomes students from other disciplines in lower-division classes and can accommodate a limited number of these students in upper-division (300/400- level) courses as the school's professional-program students are given priority.
Because the Perdue School cannot guarantee that non-majors will be able to enroll in upper-division courses during any specific semester, students from other disciplines should plan ahead if their program requires upper-division Perdue School courses
