Non-Degree Program

The Non-Degree MBA program allows prospective students to begin taking FLEX MBA courses before becoming matriculated. As a Non-Degree student, you can take up to four FLEX MBA courses (maximum of two per semester). These courses will count towards your MBA degree once you are accepted as long as you receive a grade of “B-” or better.

Benefits of the Non-Degree Program

  • If you have a low GPA, this is a good way to show the admissions committee that you can succeed in MBA-level courses.
  • If you missed the matriculation deadline, this allows you to still begin taking classes in the upcoming semester.
  • It’s a good way for students to get a feel for the FLEX MBA program before fully matriculating.

The Non-Degree Application process is simple, and allows you to request the course(s) you are interested in taking.  Apply today.
