Non-degree Status

Students wishing to take credit courses, either evening or daytime, without meeting the full requirements for admission to an undergraduate program may apply for non-degree status in the University or in any of its off-campus programs, providing the following qualifications are met:

  • Students under the age of 23 requesting non-degree status must be high school graduates, or have their GED.
  • Students 23 years of age or older may enroll in University courses on non-degree status without meeting the regular entrance requirements.
  • Students who wish to register on a non-degree status must file an admission form which includes the following information:
    • Former high school and colleges attended, with information regarding class standing in those institutions.
    • A statement of intention to register as non-degree.
    • A statement with regard to academic standing in former colleges attended.
  • The non-degree student is subject to all ENMU-Roswell policies and regulations governing registration, attendance and academic standing.

Admission to classes with prerequisites, if those prerequisites have not been satisfied, requires the consent of the instructor. Non-degree students wishing to take a mathematics or English class must score at the required university skills levels on the placement test or successfully complete the 100 level classes before they may enroll. Non-degree students who have successfully completed freshman-level courses in mathematics and English are exempt from this requirement.

Students on non-degree status may apply to the Academic Standards Committee for formal admission to the University upon successful completion of 12 or more hours of credit with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better.

Course / University Withdrawal Policy

Students may withdraw from a course and/or completely withdraw from the University between the last day to register (End of the Drop/Add period) and the Friday of week 10.

Student Withdrawal

When an officially enrolled student decides to cease attending any or all courses, the student is responsible for initiating the withdrawal action through the appropriate division dean. Merely discontinuing class attendance does not constitute a drop or a withdrawal. To complete this process, the student must complete the following procedures:

1. Students may initiate the withdrawal process by visiting the Division Dean’s office, completing the personal information on the form, obtaining the required faculty signatures, and returning the completed form to the Advising and Retention Office for final approvals. Students should complete the withdrawal process in person. If withdrawal cannot be done in person, see Number 2.

2. Students may initiate the withdrawal process by email and submit their request to the Division Dean through their ENMU-Roswell email account. The email must include the student’s ID number, student‘s contact phone number, the course name and number, CRN, and the instructor’s name. The email will be forwarded to the appropriate instructor for approval. The instructor will respond within 72 hours. If unable to do so, or extenuating circumstances exist, Division Deans will have override authority to advance the withdrawal to the Advising and Retention Office for final approvals. Withdrawals will be effective as of the date of the email.

3. Students may initiate the withdrawal process through a signed fax to the appropriate Division Dean. The faxed request must include the student’s ID number, the student’s contact phone number, the course name and number, CRN, and instructor‘s name. The request will be forwarded to the appropriate instructor. The instructor will respond within 72 hours. If unable to do so, or extenuating circumstances exist, the Division Deans will have override authority to advance the withdrawal to the Advising and Retention Office for final approvals. Withdrawals will be effective as of the date of the fax.

4. The student is NOT OFFICIALLY withdrawn until the instructor, division dean, and advisor have approved the withdrawal and it is received in the Admissions and Records Office.

5. Telephone requests for withdrawal will not be accepted, and a third party, other than a designated official of the University, may not request a student’s withdrawal without the expressed, written authorization of the student.

Adding/Dropping a Course

Students may add and/or drop courses only during the period of time specified in the University Calendar. Students cannot enroll or add courses after the late registration deadline has passed.
